Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh on Tuesday launched a free Cancer Detection Centre in Ranchi and urged people not to associate the dreaded disease with death.

Launching YouWeCan Cancer Screening initiative, Yuvraj emphasised on the importance of early detection to control the menace of cancer.

"People are aware about my battle with cancer and my resolve to win it, and live a normal life like all. I am very happy to see the initiative reaching out to Jharkhand in a very short span of time," he said.
