She inspired women to embrace themselves and their transformation in the most beautiful way possible!
“Cancer treatments have given us a lot of limitations, robbed us of beauty and taken away our confidence. As little girls, we have always dreamt of what our big day will be like and how we would look like as a bride.”
Through her beautiful images, she wants to show how beautiful life can be even if you are struggling with an ugly disease like cancer.
Her pictures, taken by photographer Celes Gerard, make you believe that cancer cannot be the “be all and end all”.
She shared how many brides suffering from cancer give up too easily. And with her pictures, she hopes to change that thought.
Life has not been easier for this real warrior. Navi Indran Pillai has fought cancer twice.
Initially, she was suffering from breast cancer which she believed was completely cured after the treatment. But after 5 years, she re-lived a nightmare when she learned that it had spread to her liver and backbone.
After multiple rounds of chemotherapy, she again came out like a true hero.
“I felt that I was not beautiful enough to be loved and was not beautiful enough to look or ever feel like a bride. Hair, it is our ‘crowning glory’ and having that taken away from you is devastating. But we choose to accept what we have, appreciate what we are and welcome what is coming.”
So, the next time you find yourself complaining about your weight or your color or your hair, think about these beautiful pictures!
The pictures that show how our flaws make us look beautiful. At IFORHER, we want to thank Navi Indran Pillai for her courage to break beauty myths! We want to thank her for showing us that beauty is not in glowing skin & long hair, it is skin deep!
We wish you a speedy recovery and a colorful life ahead!
