She also started trending #Focusonthecause and wrote, ”This is all we wanted. For people to sit up and notice and talk to their medical practitioners, take informed decisions. That’s all!”.

Issuing an apology earlier, Poonam defended herself sharing a post that read, “I understand that the recent news of my supposed demise due to Cervical Cancer has taken a minute to digest and I appreciate the warmth and concern that the world has extended in the last 24 hours. This unexpected turn of events, albeit startling, serves a greater purpose. Before passing judgement on the cat, I urge you to recognize the alarming concern burdening women worldwide. The sheer lack of awareness surrounding this issue was the mere reason that compelled me to take this unconventional step.”
