powering cures, realizing futures

King Singh

At the age of two, King was diagnosed with a rare combination of blood cancer (leukemia) and an incurable blood disease (g6pd). He completed 3.5 years of daily intense chemotherapy treatment. He received chemo via his port, in his spine and daily chemo pills ranging from 10-12 per day.

As a result of the intense chemotherapy treatment, King lives with late effects including neuropathy and cognitive deficits. He also lost the ability to walk and talk during treatment. Regardless of all the obstacles he overcame and still battles today, he remains resilient and selfless.

King is an asset to his community and gives back in any and every way he can to honor his own battle, his grandmother Roxann who was a 9/11 survivor and friends he lost to cancer. He began participating in walks, advocating and sharing his journey since diagnosis. No child deserves to go though the pain and suffering that King has experienced.

The battle is never over once you hear those words “you have cancer.” This is why it is so important for King to help to find a cure to this horrible disease. King does not take a second for granted and is dedicated to using his second chance at life to pay it forward. His example demonstrates that strength and kindness have no age limitation.
