Messages of support have been pouring in for famed Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh who is currently undergoing treatment after it was recently announced that he has been diagnosed with lung cancer.
Singh was diagnosed with a non-malignant tumour of the lung in 2011 but further tests have revealed he has cancer and is now undergoing chemotherapy in the United States. His physiotherapist, Jatin Chaudhary has said that the cancer was curable and that ”It is a rare tumour and is cancerous but it has been detected in stage one.” So, it seems there is hope for the world cup winning cricketer who is expected to end treatment in April and be ready to play from May.
Messages of support have been pouring in from team mates, politicians and fans. Indian Sports Minister Ajay Maken wrote on Twitter that we ”Wish Yuvraj a speedy recovery! Asking officials to find the quantum and nature of help required. Government should and will help him.”
Team mate Harbhajan Singh also tweeted that ”He is a born fighter. I request media to respect Yuvraj’s privacy and allow him to concentrate on his recovery. He will be back with a bang.”
“Shocked to learn Yuvraj Singh [is] down with cancer. Yuvraj if you read this, know that we all pray for you… All shall and will be well,” tweeted Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan.
Yuvraj’s health first deteriorated during the World Cup last year, in which he was the man of the tournament, helping his country win the trophy for the first time since 1983.
