Have you ever had to say goodbye to someone you loved? Rihanna expresses her sorrow after her young pal Jasmina loses her battle with cancer

Rihanna fought to save Jasmina Anema for the last year, but unfortunately, the 6-year-old died from leukemia on Jan. 27.

“I am incredibly heartbroken that Jasmina has passed away. She was such a brave and special child. She showed more strength and spirit than many adults I have met. I feel blessed that I was able to have her in the my life, and I know that through her example she has saved many lives. She was truly an angel on earth,” Rihanna, 21, said in a statement that she posted on her website Jan. 28.

Although other famous folk like President Barack Obama and the members of Destiny’s Child were Jasmina’s celebrity friends, Rihanna was an exceptionally strong supporter, even helping to launch a blood drive that led to a matching bone marrow donor in 2009.
