Rihanna, 50 Cent Trying To Save Sick Baby’s Life
They’ve joined the fight to find a bone-marrow donor…
Rihannais fronting a campaign to help find a bone marrow donor for a sick baby.
One-year-old 50 Cent was next get his cheek swabbed to see if he was a match, and more recently Pharrell Williams, Linkin Parkand Gossip Girlstar Leighton Meesterhave used their fame to highlight Ayelet’s plight.
Rihanna used her profile in a similar way in 2009 when she attempted to save the life of six-year-old leukaemia sufferer Jasmina Anema. She appeared on television at Jasmina’s bedside to highlight the need for donors, but the child passed away in January 2010.
At the time the Umbrella singer released a statement saying she was lucky to have known Jasmina. "I am incredibly heartbroken that Jasmina has passed away. She was such a brave and special child. She showed me more strength and spirit that many adults I have met. I feel blessed that I was able to have her in my life and know that through her example, she has saved many lives. She was truly an angel on earth."
