Rihanna Pays Inspirational Visit to a Sick Fan

by at .  Updated at .

With all the negative publicity surrounding her - even though she was the victim in the Chris Brown case - it's nice to see Rihanna getting back to living her life and reaching out to one of her fans and making a little girl's day.

Jasmina Anema, 6, is one of Rihanna's biggest fans. So when her musical idol walked into her hospital room at NYU Medical Center April 2 to visit her, as People magazine reports, the leukemia patient could hardly believe her eyes.

"She's really here!" Jasmina exclaimed when Rihanna came in and hugged her. "You are such a beautiful little girl," the singer told the ailing child.

High doses of chemotherapy often leave Jasmina tired, while a bone marrow donor registry works around the clock to try and find her a suitable match.

"But when Rihanna walked in the room, there was no sign of that at all," said her doctor. "Jasmina loves Rihanna. And Rihanna fell in love with Jasmina."

Indeed, the two girls became fast friends, spending more than three hours talking, playing and even indulging in a slumber party-like pillow fight.

Rihanna first learned about Jasmina's plight in early February, when she saw the moving video Jasmina's best friend, Isabelle Huurman, and her mother, Karen Detrick, made appealing for bone marrow donors to save Jasmina.
