Rihanna Reunites with 6 Year Old Leukemia Patient - A Top Story This Week
Rihanna spent three hours with the leukemia patient giving her a princess makeover and manicure bedside. After learning of Jasmina's battle with NK-cell leukemia in February, Rihanna pleaded with the public to register with DKMS Americas the world's largest bone marrow donor center.
Her appeal drew thousands of new donors and resulted in a match for the six-year-old who visited her hero for the first time post-transplant yesterday.

Rihanna continues to urge people to sign the registry and give other children, like Jasmina a second chance at life. - DKMS Americas site
