The reports of cricketer Yuvraj Singh undergoing treatment for lung cancer in the US are making his fans pray hard for his recovery. The 30-year-old cricketer was first diagnosed with a non-malignant tumour in October last year, and is said to be undergoing chemotherapy at the Cancer Research Institute in Boston after his cancer was diagnosed as malignant.
“If news about @yuvsingh09 illness is true then my prayers are with him. I hope the news isn’t as bad as I am hearing it is,” tweeted actor Rahul Bose. “I think it’s unfair to speculate about Yuvraj’s health till he speaks about it. Until then, hoping and praying he is up and active soon,” tweeted actor Siddharth.
Non-celebrity wishes ruled social networking sites. "@yuvsingh09 There’s a prayer in every heart for you, we believe you can win any battle, we believe in you Yuvi. God bless and all the love!,” tweeted Zoheb Motlekar. “Yuvraj Singh showed numerous times. how big fighter..he will emerge as winner as always..waiting another “LIFE SAVING INNING” from you #Yuvi (sic),”
wrote Narendra Nath.
“Wishing @yuvsingh09 a speedy recovery!” tweeted Yuvraj Singh Zone. Yuvi, himself, had tweeted on January 27, “Reading Lance Armstrong’s book ... I’m sure it’ll motivate me and pull me through this time! Livestrong yuvstrong!”
