The family and friends of Chris Singleton Jr. are uniting to raise money to help with his battle against cancer. Please show your support!

This page has been made for the people who have asked to help cover the costs of expenses due to Christopher's medical treatments and to help him enjoy life to the fullest while he is here.

The story of Christopher’s illness began the day I took him to Memorial Hospital for his stomach pains and constipation. The doctors did a CT scan of Christopher’s abdomen and found a large mass in his stomach.  We were referred to Wolfson Children’s Hospital, where another set of doctors performed surgery to remove the mass and diagnosed hin as having Clear Cell Sarcoma of the Kidney. He was just 2 years old. A year later, routine scans showed doctors that the cancer had spread to Christopher’s brain. We were all devastated. Once again, Christopher, had to go through the routine of surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. After this was all finished, he was considered "in remission". We were all thrilled and hoped to never have to experience cancer again. He started kindergarten later that year. The very next spring, Christopher's cancer returned on the side of his brain. Reluctantly, he had another brain surgery performed and started treatment. We were told there was no guarantee that this cancer would not return but we were hopeful. Christopher turned 6 years old that summer and entered the 1st grade. With all of the treatments and illness to his brain, we were told Christopher might not do as well in school as the other kids. He finished the first grade earning awards for all E's for the whole year academically and all E's throughout the year in conduct. God is good! Christopher is now on summer vacation from school and has been told that there are two new tumors on his brain. Since this is his third relapse and there are no other treatment options available besides what he has already had, we have been told his long term prognosis is not good. His oncologist has given us the option to go without treatment and focus on better quality of life for him while he is here, or to put him through the same treatment as before with bad side effects. We are still praying on this decision and believing in God for a miracle. We thank you all for the love, support, and prayers <3
