“Yuvraj Singh’s story can be the good news that inspires. It’s not a sad story.”

—Harmala Gupta, cancer survivor and founder of CanSupport,
which provides home care for people with terminal cancer.

It’s not a sad story, it needn’t be a sad story, for it’s the story of a hero, and a hero must smile through pain as he does through pleasure. And hasn’t Yuvraj Singh had many reasons to smile? Didn’t April mark the pinnacle of his career? Written off when the World Cup started as ‘finished and over-the-hill’, Yuvraj became the Man of the Tournament, winning four Man of the Match awards. On March 24, 2011, as he guided India to a win over defending champions Australia, propelling them into the semi-finals, every young boy in the country wanted to grow up to be Yuvraj Singh.
