Best Wishes Rihanna Truman
Rihanna Truman is an amazing 16-year-old girl who is hoping this week that she will get to spend precious moments getting to know her baby.
Rihanna discovered she had adamantinoma, a rare form of bone cancer when she was just 12-years-old. She initially had a bone tumour in her leg removed, but last year her condition became worse as the cancer spread in her body.
The cancer is virtually untreatable, with chemotherapy and radiation therapy both failing. Despite this, doctors are still trying to find a new drug.
Earlier this year, Rihanna discovered she was pregnant. Making an extraordinarily brave choice, Rihanna, decided to keep her baby despite the fact that the risks associated with the birth were unclear. Her actions demonstrate a true act of love and sacrifice for her baby boy.
"If I die, I'm going to be happy. Because for me, I have lived my life and my son will hopefully be grateful that I chose to have him,” said Rihanna.
Rihanna is booked for a caesarean section next week and said that if anything happens to her the baby will be looked after by her partner.
