A personal message Lance Armstrong, the cycling legend who himself suffered from testicular cancer in 1996 but came back cured to win Tour de France for a record seven times, has made Yuvraj Singh feel better. The World Cup hero, who is undergoing treatment for cancer in the US, has posted the picture of the letter that he received from the cycling legend on Twitter and has twitted "Message from @lancearmstrong makes me feel better ! Thank you lance means a lot hope we can meet."
The letter from Armstrong reads: "Yuvi, I want you to know that the entire LIVESTRONG team is here for you. We say it all the time, and truly believe in it: Knowledge is Power, Unity is Strength, and Attitude is Everything.
Please know that we are here to help you and your family in any way possible. Go Yuvi!! Livestrong."
It must be mentioned that Yuvraj has been drawing inspiration from Lance Armstrong and has been reading his autobiography ‘It's Not about the Bike: My Journey Back to Life’ for motivation in his fight against the dreaded illness.
Former Indian captain Kapil Dev too wished Yuvraj Singh, who is currently undergoing chemotherapy for germ cell cancer in the United States, a speedy recovery. "I wish him all the best. My prayers are with him," said the 1983 World Cup-winning captain, adding, "He is a brilliant player. He has done a great service to the nation and I wish he recovers soon and resumes playing for the country," said Kapil in New Delhi
Meanwhile, the whole nation is praying about Yuvraj speedy recovery with messages pouring in from all quarters, including his teammates. Two days ago Gautam Gambhir and Mahendra Singh Dhoni had wished their teammate a speedy recovery.

Dhoni also wished Yuvi a speedy recovery, saying that Yuvraj loves challenges and he will come out strong. "He will get well soon, he is someone who loves challenges and I believe he will come out strong," Dhoni said about Yuvraj after leading his side to a four-wicket win over Australia in the ODI tri-series here.
