6-year-old Jasmina Amena lost her courageous battle to leukemia yesterday. Her mother Thea made the sad announcement: “Today, January 27, at 10:55 p.m., Jasmina lost her fight against leukemia.”

Singers Rihanna and Lil Mama helped rally support to help find a suitable bone marrow donor for their young fan. But it was too late.

Commenting from the White House, U.S. president Barack Obama said:

“It is with great sadness today that Michelle and I extend our condolences on the passing of Jasmina Anema. Jasmina showed tremendous bravery in the face of adversity, and her ability to stay positive throughout her battle was an inspiration to me and to all those she touched. As the parents of two young girls, our hearts particularly go out to Jasmina’s devoted mother Thea. Our thoughts and prayers are with her and with all who knew and loved Jasmina.”

    RIP sweetie!!!

    Lil Mama looks like she could double as Lil Papa. SHe has some “strong” features…

    Usually I dont have anything good to say about Rhianna but she was really trying to save that girl’s life by trying to find a donor. I commend her for that.

    Jasmina has joined the angels up above. Losing a child is perhaps the hardest thing a woman can go thru. (It’s usually the other way round.) We never know when God will come knocking. May she rest in peace and may God bless the family. Peace.

  • Jewelry

    Beautiful angel…RIP…you will be missed.

  • bk2atl

    Totally agree with @PAHairston. I’ve often heard people who lose their child say that it just feels so unatural to have to bury your child. I THINK her mom was a single mom too, such a strong woman. She fought so hard for her baby’s life and made sure everyone knew who Jasmina was. I pray for strength and peace for her mom. RIP Jasmina.

    6 years for a reason. Her life and her struggle will be a catalyst for someone. Mommy should rejoice because the world can be such an ugly place for even the healthiest and happiest people.

    To be absent in the body is to be present with our God 😀

    My grandma died before my great grandmother (who is still living). My great grand always says, “I’ve buried my husband, mother, father, sisters and brothers but there is NOTHING like burying your own child. Sad.

    I’m about to cry, I can’t stand seeing people suffer from cancer especially the little kids. That is why I’m going to school trying to become an oncologist so I can help eradicate this disease..

    God Bless her family.
