Tanisha Roy shares her inspiring journey of battling against cancer & depression and working towards her dream of becoming Mrs. India Worldwide.
Bangalore based Tanisha Roy is a true fighter. She faced multiple life-threatening challenges with so amazing courage. And, now she has been selected as one of the Mrs. India Worldwide finalists.
Tanya has been selected as one of the 175 finalists among the 30,000 participants across 20 countries to participate for Haute Monde Mrs. India Worldwide beauty pageant 2019. The pageant will happen in October 2019 in Greece.
It is an extraordinary achievement but the journey so far has been extremely difficult for Tanisha Roy.
Last year, 2018, turned out to be one of the most difficult years for Tanisha so far. As she was diagnosed with pleomorphic adenoma (a form of tumor), her life posed a challenge that no one wants to even dream of.

Her tumor spread to turn into the first stage of cancer.
But with no medication option, she had to go ahead with macro open surgery. The surgery was successful and the tumor was removed. But unfortunately, it left a huge split from the ear to the neck.
While sharing her journey with YS,
“The surgery was a macro-surgery. I was cut open from the lobe of my left ear and down my neck; if the surgery had gone wrong, I would have been paralysed with my facial nerves twisted.”
Though Tanisha fought against Cancer like a true warrior, life wasn’t at all easy for her post-surgery.

After surgery Tanisha put on weight. Rather than being supportive, her friends and neighbors body-shamed her. And as a result, she slipped into depression. This difficult time taught Tanisha the most important lesson on self-love and self-care.
While sharing her awakening moment, she mentioned:
“Finally after my six months of bed rest, I said to myself – enough is enough, I woke up as if from a deep sleep and realised that I have the power to create my own reality”
And to rebuild her life, Tanisha hit the gym despite it being physically difficult for her. But with her unparalleled dedication & conviction, motivated Tanisha lost weight with workout and planned diet.
During this weight-loss journey, she shared how she cut off not only toxic things but also toxic people:
“I nourished my body with good thoughts and nutritious food, and cut off all things that were toxic for me. Be it food, drinks, or even harmful relationships (pseudo friends, relatives who were draining energy from me instead of healing me)”
In the end, Tanisha’s hard work paid off. She not only lost 25 kgs in the process but also managed to get selected as a finalist for the Haute Monde Mrs. India Worldwide pageant.
