Yuvi launches drive to detect cancer at early stageKolkata: Yuvraj Singh has battled cancer with flying colours and now the India`s World Cup hero has launched a drive to detect the dreaded disease at the early stages for a successful cure.

The stylish left-hander on Monday joined hands with the Apollo Gleneagles Cancer Hospital through which they would screen one lakh people in next six months for the disease.

"It`s very close to my heart and I want it to grow. I believe all of us can join hands to save lives," Yuvraj said at the pact of Yuvraj Singh Foundation`s YouWeCan and the Apollo Gleneagles Cancer Hospital.

"It feels great to be playing again. My team, family and friends have played a huge supportive role," Yuvraj who was diagnosed with a stage-1 cancerous tumour in his left lung in 2011, said.

Yuvraj successfully underwent three cycles of chemotherapy in the United States and returned to action after battling a germ cell cancer in September for a T20 International against New Zealand.
