Rihanna Pays Tribute To Fan Who Passed Away From Cancer
Rihanna paid a sweet tribute to a fan named Monia on Thursday, who recently passed away after her third battle with cancer.
The singer shared to Instagram a photo and video with this one particular Navy when they met in London in June, after Monia found out her cancer had returned.
Sadly, the young fan’s last Instagram post was a screenshot of a comment from Rih just earlier this month sending her love and support.
See the touching message Rihanna penned in honor of her “angel” (below):

Navy Angels! This Christmas, we lost a beautiful spirit who was such a pillar of strength to us! Most of our friendship she’s spent in a hospital or doctor’s office! This picture was just a few months ago, she looked at me and said “Rih the cancer is back” I’ll never forget the fear in her eyes this day! Still she pushed forward, fighting the fight everyday with the Navy behind her supporting her every step of the way! We are all heartbroken about this!!! You will never be forgotten! Love you my angel @moniasto fly in peace.
Rest in peace, Monia!
