Unfortunately cancer has taken the life of another person today—this time it was the adorable and ambitious 6-year-old Miyah Telemaque-Nelson. Miyah was introduced to social media five month’s after she was diagnosed with severe Burkitt’s Lymphoma earlier this spring. The young Nicki Minaj fan took a brave chance by expressing her dream of meeting the multi-platinum pop star and getting her very own Nicki pink wig.
Her wish was granted when basketball player John Wall and social media took over the #Pinkwigformiyah campaign. When Nicki heard the news and story, she hopped on board immediately to make this young fighters’ dreams come true. Towards the end of March, Miyah sucessfully met her idol and received a custom wig, which she was surely proud of.
Almost a year later, the news got out that this little angel has passed. Nicki Minaj along with John Wall both took the unfortunate occurrence pretty hard, but they are showing their support to the family and encouraging other to do so as well. Our prayers and love go out to Miyah’s family and friends.
