20 year old pop star Rihanna needs your help. Rihanna is trying to help a woman in desperate need of a bone marrow transfer. Her name is Lisa Flynn and she was recently featured on People mag. dot com over the weekend. “When I heard about Lisa’s plight, my heart broke,” Rihanna told the magazine. “I said, `I need to get the word out about Lisa right away.'” So Rihanna is working with the DKSM donor network to provide help.

Flynn is a 41-year-old mother of two young children. She was diagnosed in November with acute myelogenous leukemia, a fast-growing cancer of the blood and bone marrow. Doctors have told her she has four to six weeks to find a suitable donor, according to People. Flynn said she was stunned by the singer’s efforts on her behalf.
“For Rihanna to even be thinking about helping others and putting herself out there when she is so busy with her career is tremendous,” Flynn said.
