Popular TV actor Hina Khan last week revealed that she's been diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer. Since then, the actor has been posting positive affirmations and documenting her battle with cancer on social media. She is also manifesting a cancer-free life in future.

On Monday, Hina documented her cancer journey by sharing a video of her visiting a hospital for her first chemotherapy session right after attending an award show. The video begins with Hina posing for the paps on the red carpet and receiving an award at an event. Hina was then seen walking into the hospital for her chemo.

She wrote, "This award night, I knew about my cancer diagnosis, but I made a conscious choice to normalise it - not just for myself, but for all of us. This was the day that changed everything, it marked the beginning of one of the most challenging phases of my life. So Let's do some affirmations. We become what we believe in and I have decided to take this challenge as an opportunity to reinvent myself, again. I have decided to keep the spirit of positivity as the first tool in my toolkit. I choose to Normalise this experience for me and I have consciously decided to manifest the outcome I desire. For me ..my work commitments matter. For me my motivation, passion and art matter. I refuse to bow down. This award that I received right before my first chemo was not my motivation alone, in fact, I attended this event to reassure myself that I am living up to the benchmark, I have set up for myself."

She then added, "MIND OVER MATTER.I attended the event and went straight up to the hospital for my first chemo. I humbly urge everyone out there too to first Normalise the challenges of your lives then set goals for yourself and try to live up to them all along the way. No matter how hard. Never back down. Never give up."
