NEW YORK, N.Y. -- Kelly Rowland made it a very special birthday for Jasmina Anema, a Leukemia patient who turned 6 on Wednesday.
The former Destiny’s Child singer joined Jasmina and her best friend, Isabelle, at NYU Medical Center today to help her young fan celebrate.
Jasmina is currently battling Leukemia and is in search of a bone marrow transplant.
“The message I would like for everybody out there to know is that this Saturday is a [bone marrow] drive and it’s an outpatient surgery — it’s not an invasive procedure,” Kelly told Access Hollywood on Wednesday. “Just think about if it were you, if it were your family member, someone that you’re extremely close to and look at her face. This life.”
According to Billboard, Kelly’s next gig will find her focusing on style, not singing, as she joins Isaac Mizrahi and Fern Mallis for Bravo’s “The Fashion Show,” which will launch on the network later this year.
