World Cup hero, India cricketer Yuvraj Singh would be soon seen on TV, sharing his experience of battle with cancer.
Viacom18's flagship entertainment brand Colors Channel today announced a partnership with Yuvraj Singh and his foundation `You We Can' which works for increasing the cancer awareness.
The show titled `Zindagi Abhi Baaki Hai', a three-part series on Yuvi's experience of tackling the `emperor of maladies', will be aired on Colors. The series will be simultaneously broadcast on Viacom18's youth entertainment brand MTV India.
"I thank everyone for giving me the opportunity to be a part of this. It is overwhelming. Cancer is a disease that can eat through lives. I remember when I was diagnosed I had lot of wishes and love from people of India and around India and it worked out," Yuvraj told reporters here.
"It is my story...I want people to know that when they get this kind of disease, what you feel when you learn you have cancer, how you can fight it, how one is in denial mode, etc. I want to share my experience with everyone. I want to be an inspiration for everyone so that they can live their life all over again."
The proceeds from sponsorships of the show will go to You We Can Foundation.
