Try-try until u succeed, we have heard this quote many times but Bengaluru-based Sonia Singh is the real example of it. She is all fit and fine and surviving with husband and 3-months-old baby. But, suddenly her life turns and she got know about her critical situation.
After repeated periods of fainting and totally blackouts, she underwent a CT scan and got know she had a medullary cystic tumor. Day by day her condition worsened though she wasn't able to walk or talk properly.
But, without backing out after three years, she started her life again and currently bagged the title of Mrs. India Karnataka Congeniality 2018 and also inaugurated her own business– a unisex salon in BTM 2nd stage.
Sonia Singh, the winner of Mrs. India Karnataka Congeniality 2018 said about her Diagnosis and Surgery, "The tumor was on the part which controls the spinal cord and its movements. I guess they had to remove a part of that as well. I would need my husband’s help in sitting, eating, even going to the washroom and feeding my son."
“I used to try and keep busy in whatever limited way I could. Looking after my son kept me going. That, and the idea that I wanted to get back up on my feet… take a job or start something of my own as soon as I could,” Sonia added.
She worked for airline companies for 9 years but after this, it was very difficult for her to sit at home. However, it took three long years to recover after surgery and about her recovery Sonia said, "One day, I was looking at my old photos from my air hostess days. And I thought I wanted to use that experience in grooming and hospitality somewhere. In a way that would make me feel good. That’s how I decided to participate in a beauty pageant."
Sonia further added by saying, "she has always had a stubborn tendency to run after what challenges her. When she finally won the title of Mrs. India Karnataka Congeniality, Sonia felt it was well deserved."
“I thought it described my personality. And I had proved to everyone but also to myself that I did not need sympathy. And while the physical pain I feel in doing simple physical tasks is going to be a permanent part of my life, it will not stop me from living,” she says.
Well, really this women turns out as an inspiration for all of us and realized to fight against all odd if, we want to win.
