Yuvraj posted the pic of the letter on Twitter that read as "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."

An ecstatic Yuvraj, who is undergoing chemotherapy in Boston for rare germ cell cancer, tweeted: "Message from @lancearmstrong makes me feel better ! Thank you lance means a lot hope we can meet."

The American cyclist was diagnosed with Stage 3 testicular cancer in 1996, but he recovered to go on to win the sport's most prestigious race, the Tour de France, an unprecedented seven times.

Lance Armstrong made a sensational return to professional cycling on Sunday, as he finished second to New Zealand's former Olympic medallist Bevan Docherty in the Panama.

Armstrong had retired from professional cycling last year.

Yuvraj is currently reading his autobiography 'It's Not About The Bike' to draw inspiration. Incidentally, he is also being treated by the same doctor.
