Rihanna reached out to a longtime fan who is battling cancer.
Rihanna Navy member Monia posted a picture of herself on Instagram a month ago to give her 10.6K followers an update on her condition. The image showed her with a huge smile across her face while she posed with her oxygen tank.
Monia declared she would make her tank a “fashion statement.”
On Tuesday, Monia posted a screenshot of a supportive comment from Rihanna and thanked her for the well-wishes, reports Billboard.

This isn’t the first time Rihanna has been nurturing toward a fan.
Last June, a fan named Samer slid in her DMs for relationship advice.
“Hey Robs…how did you get over your first heartbreak,” he asked. “I’ve been struggling.”
She replied with excellent advice.
“Just believe that the heartbreak was a gift in itself! Cry if you have to, but it won’t be forever! You will find love again, and it will be even more beautiful! In the meantime enjoy all that YOU are!!!” she recommended.
Samer told BuzzFeed he asked Rih for advice because she be knowin'.
“It was my first relationship ever, and they ended it with me in January, but it's been really hard for a multitude of reasons. I reached out to Rihanna because she's given me advice many times — she's wise 'n s**t. Lol,” he said.
