New Delhi:

Flamboyant India cricketer Yuvraj Singh has said that cancer survivors do not need pity and sympathy. After having successfully battled a rare germ cell cancer, the south-paw also encouraged others suffering from the disease to fight back.

Yuvraj, who wants to make a comeback to the Indian national team by September and has revealed that he has been dreaming of his return, said on Saturday that the most important factor to battling the dreaded disease is to stay positive. "Very important for the people out there with the same disease to be positive," he said as he met fellow cancer patients including a sixteen year old boy.

The player of the tournament in the 2011 World Cup was also nominated for the Arjuna Award by the Board of Control for Cricket in India.
