Kolkata: Yuvraj Singh has battled cancer with flying colours and now the India's World Cup hero has launched a drive to detect the dreaded disease at the early stages for a successful cure.
The stylish left-hander joined hands with the Apollo Gleneagles Cancer Hospital through which they would screen one lakh people in next six months for the disease.
"It's very close to my heart and I want it to grow. I believe all of us can join hands to save lives," Yuvraj said at the pact of Yuvraj Singh Foundation's YouWeCan and the Apollo Gleneagles Cancer Hospital.
"It feels great to be playing again. My team, family and friends have played a huge supportive role," Yuvraj who was diagnosed with a stage-1 cancerous tumour in his left lung in 2011, said.
Yuvraj successfully underwent three cycles of chemotherapy in the United States and returned to action after battling a germ cell cancer in September for a T20 International against New Zealand.
