Hyderabad, December 08:

Tennis star Sania Mirza today interacted with a group of cancer survivors at a hospital here and appreciated their grit and courage.

Sania, who was the chief guest at the 13th anniversary celebrations of The Laryngectomee Society of Apollo Hospital,
interacted with cancer survivors and appreciated their courage.

The event sent a strong message that cancer is curable and despite all odds, it is possible to live a normal life as
cancer survivors, the organisers said in a release.

Quoting the example of cricketer Yuvraj Singh, Dr Umanath Nayak, Consultant Head, Apollo Cancer Hospital and Founder
President of the society, said that they had "many such Yuvraj Singhs in their midst."

The Laryngectomee society is a voluntary self-help rehabilitation group of cancer survivors who have undergone
surgery for removal of their larynx (voice box) as treatment for cancer of the throat, the release added.
