Mahira Khan slams troll for joking about breast cancer


Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women, worldwide with Pakistan having one of the highest incidences of this cancer in Asia. Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital and Research Centre is currently running this year’s Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign with Mahira Khan, Sanam Saeed and Maya Ali as it’s face. The trio is busy spreading awareness on the disease on different social media platforms.

As part of this awareness campaign Mahira shared on Twitter that she got 11/15 on her breast cancer knowledge even though she “thought she knew all she could about breast cancer!”

To this a Twitter user responded, “You were wrong, Your tits are soo small just like your knowledge.”

However, Mahira chose not to ignore this comment and replied saying, “It’s because of people like you women don’t even bother saying the word ‘breast’ let alone go for an examination. Why don’t you take the quiz, to be more aware for the women in your family and yourself (men can also get breast cancer).”

Mahira has been long associated with Shaukat Khanum and has been part of several of their awareness campaigns and fundraisers.
