Russian influencer and editor Miroslava Duma has revealed she’s been diagnosed with a rare lung disease.

In a raw Instagram post on Sunday, Duma, 34, shared that she’s spent the past few months fighting for her life after being given only “7 months to live.”

“Earlier this year I was diagnosed with a rare lung disease, and given 7 months to live. It was crazy scary then, but looking back, I realise that the past few months of recovery were possibly the happiest months of my entire life,” Duma wrote alongside a photo, which shows smiling softly.

Duma revealed that her harrowing health diagnosis has helped her change her perspective on life completely.

“I suddenly stopped running the marathon and realized how much I love life, how beautiful our world is and how much I want to stay here — with the people I love.”

“For the first time in my life, I saw the bright blue of skies. And the beautiful green of trees. As if I had lived on a different planet before,” Duma wrote.

“I wake up happy, just because I can spend one more day here. Not asking for more or trying to run faster.”

Years of self criticism and doubt, stress, dieting, physically, mentally and emotionally pushing and pushing myself got my immune system to collapse and I had made myself fatally sick. I now realise that these past months were also the most creative months of my entire 34 years. Yet success to me today is not measured by external indicators anymore, but by what’s inside. It is measured by my own health, and the health of those I love. It is measured by how I choose to contribute to the world. For the past 2 years, the Universe caused me to experience a number of remarkably serendipitous events that sometimes felt surreal; like how a silly mistake, made by my lawyer, led me to an early diagnosis, and gave me a chance to live. …read more
