Online brokerage Zerodha's co-founder and CEO Nithin Kamath, in an emotional tweet on International Women's Day, shared his wife's journey of being diagnosed with breast cancer last November.
Kamath highlighted the importance of creating awareness on cancer, regular health checku-ps, health insurance for the overall health for women.
"Seema, my wife, was diagnosed with breast cancer last Nov. She decided to share her journey & learnings till now to create awareness on cancer & the importance of regular health checkups, health insurance & overall health & well being. Happy Women's Day," Kamath tweeted.
On the other hand, Seema shared her cancer journey and how she was diagnosed with stage 2 cancer despite being healthy. "I absolutely did everything possible to be healthy and I thought nothing could physically slow me down until I was diagnosed with breast cancer in Nov 2021," she said on her blog.
Emphasising the need to share their learnings she said "I constantly see my friend Kailash and husband Nithin spend a lot of time and effort open-sourcing and sharing all learnings and knowledge, the only way they say to make the world a better place".
Kamath is often seen using his social media handles to explain and enlighten investors on various stock market movements and related topics. Recently, the 41-year-old billionaire shared an interesting take on “most thing in life" as he believes YAMO (you ain't missing out) is bigger than FOMO (fear of missing out) in all areas of life in general.
He along with his younger brother Nikhil Kamath are co-founders of India's largest online brokerage firm since 2010, offering retail brokerage, currencies and commodities trading, mutual funds, and bonds.
