Almost all famous artists make a difference to their fans, but it's much rarer for a fan to make a major impact on an artist. Some fans, however, have stories so touching that even pop superstars like Rihanna can't help but take notice.


One such fan was a young lady named Monia, who was battling cancer for the third time. After a very painful journey, Monia sadly passed away earlier this month. Though they hadn't known each other long, the super-fan had such an impact on Rihanna that the singer penned a touching Instagram post to remember her by.


In her post, Rihanna wrote:

"Navy Angels! This Christmas, we lost a beautiful spirit who was such a pillar of strength to us! Most of our friendship she's spent in a hospital or doctor's office! This picture was just a few months ago, she looked at me and said "Rih the cancer is back" I'll never forget the fear in her eyes this day!"

Rihanna also posted a behind-the-scenes video of their last meeting:

Rihanna continued to support Monia on social media, liking her posts, commenting on pictures, and visiting at meet-and-greet events. On one of Monia's last Instagram photos, Rihanna commented:

"Sis we are all praying for you! Your strength and your ability to let the beauty in your spirit shine through, even in the midst of adversity, is tremendously inspiring!! Thank you for continuing to share your journey with us! I imagine it's quite a lonely one, hours on end in hospital walls, being scared to even fall asleep because you're afraid u won't wake up, feeling like nobody will ever understand that, the physical agony, the medication and all their side effects...I can't begin to imagine what you feel, so I want you to know we are all here for you and I encourage the NAVY to rally around you during these times! Love you!"




The comment made a huge difference to Monia, who reposted it along with a message about what it meant to her:

"I haven't posted in a while because there was so much going on.. so much pain, so many bad news, just too much. and right in the worst time, she's there for me. this made my day. thank you robyn, for being so real and supportive. and thanks to everyone else who is supportive in any way, every comment, every dm, every prayer - I appreciate it so much 🙏🏼 tomorrow morning is my next mrt scan, because my left eye is hurting a lot and they gotta make sure I don't have a new tumor in my brain or something. I'll keep you updated. love you x"

Fans everywhere were touched by the relationship between Riri and Monia:









Monia would ultimately fall victim to the cancer which plagued her for so long, but Rihanna is sure her beautiful soul won't soon be forgotten:

"Still she pushed forward, fighting the fight everyday with the Navy behind her supporting her every step of the way! We are all heartbroken about this!!! You will never be forgotten! Love you my angel @moniasto fly in peace."

I have a paralyzing fear of death. If I could I would live forever. Have you ever seen the movie "Death Becomes Her?" I would give every penny for that potion. And I wouldn't be all crazy like them.

Live well forever and be happy? It's possible. Even though life is nuts and scary, you're still here. What if there is nothing after the final breath? I don't want to just not exist, while everybody else just gets to keep on dancing.

In my hopes I see a Heaven with ice cream and vodka. So I'm going to hold onto that until eternal life is an option. Let's hear from the gallery...
