The Rihanna Navy remains united even after their leader has been dormant in the music industry for a hot minute now, as they join her to wish one of their very own soldiers a victorious journey through her unfortunate battle with cancer.

Rihanna recently commented under an optimistic post made by her fighting fan, Monia, leaving Monia so touched that she re-posted the comment thanking Riri for her continuous support and realness. Monia captioned the re-post explaining that she hasn’t posted in a while because she’s been dealing with a lot of pain and bad news but seeing Ri’s comment made her day hence why she felt inclined to re-post it. The photo under which Rihanna commented showed Monia with an oxygen tank, which she deemed a “fashion statement,” comparing herself to the title character from The Fault in Our Stars, and her ability to remain positive during this battle made Rihanna feel inspired.

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!” she continued. “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!”
