She uploaded a set of selfies, paid gratitude to Almighty Allah, and wrote, “My hairs growing back 🙂 Alhamdolillah. Slowly and steadily. I think I’ll keep it a short buzz cut for now, because I quite like the shape of my head and would like to enjoy it a little longer. It makes my eyes shine.”

My hairs growing back 🙂 Alhamdolillah. Slowly and steadily. I think I'll keep it a short buzz cut for now, because I quite like the shape of my head and would like to enjoy it a little longer. It makes my eyes shine. Thank you Ma for making it so nice. Hehe ???? How important it is to feel good about oneself na. Ok I still have days of doubt. But they are fewer and less intense. My self esteem depends a lot on what I'm doing for myself. A concept foreign to me before Cancer. I can also see who is not needed in my life and still be civil to them. They don't need to know unless they are hurtful and I don't need to hurt anyone's feelings, I just need to be strong and firm in my OWN boundaries. Protecting me is my job. I want to do it well. I want to enjoy life, I want to love life, I want to thrive. Anything that comes towards me by choice should be a choice I thoroughly enjoy. Yaaay! Life is a beautiful blessing. It's over in a flash and we are all headed towards meeting with eternity. So let's enjoy every minute of it together. Now.. I love you with all my heart. Your Nado #hairstyles #hair #cancerawareness
Nadia also posted a video clip of herself, grooving, just before the radiation on legendary Zoheb Hassan’s song ‘Muskuraye Ja’ and says, “A smile for all myself, all my friends out there who need one and for anyone who is feeling under the weather. Let’s not let anything keep us down for too long.”

Har ghaRi hai aik imtihaan! Girke hee sambhalte sab yahaaan! Muskuraye jaaaaaaa! Constant exposure to radiation can be daunting. But it is what it is. The radiologists explained how it is very targeted and keeping myself hydrated and the area moisturised helps a lot. So … Here goes! #smile #positivevibes #cancerawareness
