Ramsha Khan pays tribute to the late screenwriter Asma Nabeel and her fight for breast cancer awareness.

Ramsha posted the tribute with a photo of her wearing a pink dupatta as Pink is the colour globally associated with showing support for breast cancer victims.

Often women in #Pakistan shy away from getting themselves checked for breast cancer in order to protect their modesty. However, one shouldn’t have to sacrifice their health or life to protect their modesty,” Ramsha wrote.

“#AsmaNabeel, may she rest in peace, was one of the most strong and resilient fighters of breast cancer,” she added.

“This dupatta pays tribute to her bravery and other women like her and encourages women all over Pakistan to get themselves checked on time,” said the Ishqiya star, adding, “
Every year, over 85,000+ cases of breast cancer are diagnosed in Pakistan rating it the highest number of cases in Asia.”

“Prioritise your health and get yourself checked now,” urged Ramsha.

It is pertinent to mention here that Asma Nabeel had also featured in a cancer awareness #PardeyMeinParwah campaign recently.

Asma Nabeel screenwriter, poet, producer, and creative consultant lost her battle with breast cancer on Thursday night.

She had been unwell for the past couple of months.
