Rihanna Helps Nigerian Yale Law Graduate With Leukemia Find Donor

Pop star Rihanna and Grey Anatomy’s Justin Chamber have taken on the cause of twenty six year old Yale Law School graduate Seun Adebiyi, who has Leukemia, to help him find a match. Seun is currently training for the 2014 Winter Olympics. In June 2009, he was diagnosed with lymphoma and leukemia and now is in need of a bone marrow transplant.

“Leukemia interrupted Seun’s dream of being the first Nigerian in the Winter Olympics,” says Rihanna. “But together we can help him make his dream come true! We need to find him a bone marrow donor! Please sign up with DKMS!”
