A true fighter is one who never gives up despite the mounting obstacles that comes one's way and Kings XI Punjab batsman Yuvraj Singh is an epitome of a fighter. The left-handed swashbuckler, who was diagnosed with cancer after winning the 2011 World Cup with India, battled the disease and came out with flying colours.
The 36-year old batsman has been an inspiration as all his battle with cancer came at a time when Yuvraj was at the peak of his career, but despite all the odds, he overcame the life threatening disease and opened a foundation called YOUWECAN to help cancer patients.
Recently, Yuvraj met a young fan named Rocky, an 11-year old who is diagnosed with Cancer. For the young child, his idol was Yuvraj Singh and the power-hitter made his dream come true by meeting the fan.
The Kings XI Punjab official Twitter handle posted some heartwarming pictures of a young child, meeting his idol.
"11-year-old Rocky, who's suffering from cancer met with his idol @YUVSTRONG12 who spent some time with the young champ."

As reports suggest, Rocky is suffering from blood cancer for 10 years. Yuvraj met Rocky before he was being admitted to the hospital for a bone marrow implant.
Ahead of Kings XI Punjab's clash with Kolkata Knight Riders at the Holkar stadium in Indore, Yuvraj won the young fan's heart and the internets as well.
