We here at A Royal Pain want to extend our prayers and thoughts to one of the most famous Sacramento Kings fans on the planet, none other than Barbara ‘Sign Lady’ Rust, who can be seen above.

Barbara’s husband, Niko, posted news on Twitter this evening that Barbara is currently undergoing treatment for breast cancer after an MRI today showed a tumor, though thankfully it has not spread.

Niko and Barbara are not only two of the most passionate fans you’ll ever come across, but, two of the kindest people you’ll ever encounter.

From fellow fans to current and former players, they are beloved and we here at A Royal Pain want to wish them a speedy recovery.

If you want to send a note or get well Barbara’s way, as Niko mentions above, do so on Twitter by using the hashtag #LoveForSignLady.

Here’s to a quick recovery and we can’t wait to see you back at Sleep Train supporting the Kings soon!
