Rihanna‘s always there for her Navy.
The songstress took to Instagram on Tuesday (Dec. 4) to send love to a fan named Monia, who is battling cancer. The London-based fan uploaded a post-surgery photo of herself with an oxygen tank, which she deemed a “fashion statement,” comparing herself to the title character from The Fault in Our Stars. RiRi commented on the photo: “Sis we are all praying for you! Your strength and your ability to let the beauty in your spirit shine through, even in the midst of adversity, is tremendously inspiring!!”
“Thank you for continuing to share your journey with us!” she continued. “I imagine it’s quite a lonely one, hours on end in hospital walls, being scared to even fall asleep because you’re afraid u won’t wake up, feeling like nobody will ever understand that, the physical agony, the medication and all their side effects…I can’t begin to imagine what you feel, so I want you to know we are all here for you and I encourage the NAVY to rally around you during these times!”
Monia reposted the comment, thanking Rihanna for “being so real and supportive.” She’s met RiRi a few times, and the star frequently comments and likes her posts. See the most recent comment below.
