The celebrity took to Twitter on April 3 to make the emotional announcement. She said, “Last week, I was diagnosed with cancer and now I’m four days into treatment.”

Jamil then expressed the series of emotions curdling up inside her ever since she got to know about her condition. “In the last few days, I have felt all sorts of feelings, from apprehension and fear to unbeatable love to calmness and acceptance. Patience, overwhelming gratitude and a deep sense of responsibility towards my children, parents, loved ones, myself and you.”

The Balu Mahi actor went on to elaborate on the type of cancer she is fighting, along with the stage it is at. She said, “Its stage one breast cancer and grade three tumour. Regular self-checks are important ladies! Please act fast if you feel any abnormalities.”
