Yuvraj Singh urges India to spread cancer awareness
Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh, who recently battled cancer urged the country to raise cancer awareness and ways to combat the deadly disease.
“People need to understand that they have to kill this disease instead of getting killed by it. Someone may defeat it and someone may not. But we are supposed to fight,” Yuvraj Singh said at a cancer detection camp.
Sharing his own experience, he said: “My successful fight against cancer led me to start the “Youwecan” initiative to generate awareness, facilitate early detection and endeavour to remove the stigma of cancer.”
Yuvraj Singh said the worsening environment of Delhi is one of the causes of cancer.
“Cancer can happen to anyone. Delhi environment is much polluted. You all should eat well and stay aware,” he said.
Cancer is now one of the top causes of death in India.
