Rihanna keeps it cute in a striped tee as she arrives at LAX on Friday (July 9). Also, according the source, Rihanna and Alicia Keys have joined a campaign to help 11-year-old cancer-stricken Broadway star Shannon Tavarez.
Both singers are helping to get the word out about Lion King actress Tavarez, who is suffering from an acute form of leukaemia. Keys visited Tavarez last week at a Long Island hospital where she is undergoing chemotherapy treatments, reports People. “For her, the sky is the limit, but now she’s fighting for her life,” Keys said. The Grammy winner has asked her fans to become bone marrow donors. Rihanna is also urging her supporters to help the young star and others affected by the disease.
“[Tavarez] should be performing on Broadway, but is confined to her bed, fighting for her life,” Rihanna said. The star added: “She needs to find a bone marrow donor to survive. I urge all my fans to register [as donors]. It’s the most beautiful thing someone could do, to give the gift of life.”
