How Focus Leukaemia Started
Samrick Singh Bahia 21 year old from Wolverhampton who was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia (ALL) in January 2013 and decided that he wanted to do a fundraising event to raise the awareness of Leukaemia, encourage more people from the Asian communities to register as bone marrow donors though awareness and raise funds for Leukaemia Charities.
Samrick and his family then contacted Bindi Sandhu (Stop Press PR) to help them organise fundraising events and create awareness. This is when Focus Leukaemia was set up.
Samrick was given the clear October 2013 after months of chemotherapy but still has to under-go chemotherapy and treatment every month at the QE Hospital in Birmingham so that it doesn’t reoccur. He is currently in his final year studying IT at Worcester University.
