Written by Julianna Bonnett
In March 2019, ambassador Nishi Gaur was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a form of blood cancer that is treatable but incurable. Throughout her journey, Gaur credits and thanks the medical team at Windsor Regional Care Centre.
“The expertise of my medical team at the Windsor Regional Cancer Centre, love and blessings from my parents, care, support and best wishes from my family and friends, they are why I am here today in 2021 as a cancer survivor," she shares.
Gaur explains she feels lucky and blessed to have such wonderful, caring and giving people around her.
“If you are on a similar journey as mine, believe in yourself, have faith in God, and you will get through,” she says. When asked what empowers her the most, Gaur explains the strength she found in herself during her cancer journey is what keeps her going. “It gives me the will to live, to focus on what matters to me, to cherish and be grateful for all I have. The love and support that I receive from my loved ones empowers me to want to be the best version of myself,” she states. “It empowers me to be there for them. It helps me take on each day as it comes. It gives me the ability in my heart not to hold a grudge. My life’s experiences empower me.”
