Rihanna is working with the largest bone marrow donor center in the country — DKMS Americas — and is enlisting your help. What a do-gooder!
Rihanna, thanks for NOT being all talk, no action. The 22-year-old singer is enlisting YOUR help in the battle again cancer, and wants you to become a bone marrow donor like she is!
“I first became involved with [bone marrow donor organization] DKMS Americas after hearing about Lisa Flinn. She was a young mother of two, and thinking about her children having to live without their mother broke my heart,” the Umbrella singer told Teen Vogue. “So many young people think they are not important and what they do doesn’t matter, but it is! They need to know how important it is to get involved and start saving lives.”
70% of people with leukemia who are saved by bone marrow donations get their help from strangers — something Rihanna says is easier to do than you realize. “It is so simple to register and just by doing so, you could save someone’s life. That’s amazing!” she enthused.
