Alicia Keys and Rihanna Ask Fans To Donate Life

Mega celebrities, Alicia Keys and Rihanna, have teamed up to help save the life of 11-year-old Shannon Tavarez. Tavarez shined on the Broadway stage as Nala in “The Lion King” but the young star is now battling an acute form of leukemia in the hospital after being diagnosed three months ago. Now, Tavarez  is in serious need of a bone marrow transplant.

A bone marrow match is the only thing that will save this young girl’s life. Alicia Keys and Rihanna are asking all their fans to become donors. “It’s the most beautiful thing someone could do, to give the gift of life,” said Rihanna. GirlMeetsPR agrees. Tavarez’s friends, family and “Lion King” co-stars are organizing bone marrow drives in New York City.

If you would like to get involved and help Shannon Tavarez visit her Facebook page and/or DKMS Americas to find out more about the drives.
