Mumbai: Jul 10, 2012

 

Indian all-rounder and a Cancer survivor Yuvraj Singh has decided to pen down the story of his battle with the dreadful disease.

 

Titled ‘Different Form’, the memoir will be published in on December 12th by Random House India.

 

By sharing his experiences of the battle with the cancer, the all-rounder will be following the footsteps of Lance Armstrong, the American cycling legend who motivated the Indian cricketer to fight the disease while he was undergoing treatment in United States of America last year.

 

Yuvraj has also launched a nationwide campaign YouWeCan in order to generate awareness about the disease.

 

Hindustan Times quoted Random House, “This will be the first time that Singh will tell, in his own words, the real story behind the 2011 World Cup when on-the-field triumph hid increasingly puzzling health problems and worrying illnesses. ‘If I think of it my life is full of words beginning with C. 

 

“I was born in Chandigarh; I became a cricketer, and through my decade as an international cricketer all I craved, along with the rest of the India team, was the Cup…This story, though, is about the new C in my life.  It is the story of my cancer’.”

 

Through the book, the cricketer wishes to “speak to other sufferers to help them come through the sadness, loneliness, fear and desperation of cancer”
