Who is your favorite comeback personality?

Answer by Christo Thomas Jose:

Couple of names to add.

1. Yuvraj Singh – Fought Lung Cancer and having an excellent comeback..

At the 2007 World Twenty20, he famously hit six sixes in an over against England's Stuart Broad — a feat performed only three times previously in any form of senior  cricket, and previously never in an international match between two Test  cricket nations. He was named the Man of the Tournament in the 2011 Cricket World Cup and was one of the top performers at the 2007 World Twenty20, both of which India won.

In 2011, he was diagnosed with a cancerous tumor (stage-I) in his left lung and underwent chemotherapy treatment at the  Cancer Research Institute in Boston, USA as well as Medicine Facilities  in Indianapolis, Indiana.In March 2012, Yuvraj was discharged from hospital after completing the  third and final cycle of chemotherapy and returned to India in April.

He made his comeback against New Zealand in a T20I at Chennai where he scored 34 off 26 balls (1 four, 2 sixes) as India lost by only 1 run. He started his World Twenty20 campaign with a 3/24 against Afghanistan. He took 1/16 against  Australia, 2/16 against Pakistan and a 2/23 against South Africa. He  ended up being the highest wicket taker for India in the tournament,  though he could not match up to the expectations with his bat.

He got selected to the Test series against England at home, and while preparing for test, he played a single Duleep Trophy match against Central Zone at Hyderabad where he scored 208 off 241 balls (33 fours and 3 sixes) before being caught and bowled by Murali Kartik. Then he also starred in a first class match against England as a member of India A cricket team, where he scored 59 (7 fours and 4 sixes), and took 5/94 at Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai.

Amazing comeback.. Isn't it?

2. Keanu Reeves – Problematic personal life from very young age.

He is from a problematic family. His father  was arrested when he was 12 for drug dealing and his mother was a  stripper. His family moved to Canada and there he had several step dads.

 He watched his girlfriend die. They were about to get married, and she  died in a car accident. And also before that she had lost her baby.  Since then Keanu avoids serious relationships and having kids.

  He's one of the only Hollywood stars without a Mansion. He said: 'I live  in a flat, I have everything that I need at anytime, why choose an  empty house?'

 One of his best friends died by overdose, he was  River Phoenix (Joaquin Phoenix's brother). Almost in the same year  Keanu's father was arrested again.

 His younger sister had  leukemia. Today she is cured, and he donated 70% of his gains from the  movie Matrix to Hospitals that treat leukemia.

 In one of his  birthdays, he got to a little candy shop and bought him a cake, and  started eating alone. If a fan walked by he would talk to them and offer  some of the cake.

 He doesn't have bodyguards, and he doesn't wear fancy clothes.

 When they asked him about 'Sad Keanu', he replied: 'You need to be happy to live, I don't.'"
