Her hair might be red these days, but Rihanna‘s commitment to eradicating leukemia is true blue. The “Umbrella” singer was just honored by bone marrow donor organization DKMS for her contributions to rid the world of the often fatal disease.

RiRi told fans that “Anyone can be affected by leukemia…. It is the number one disease children in the U.S. die of and we can change that. I encourage people to become bone marrow donors with DKMS. If we have more donors, we can save more lives.”

At the ceremony, she dedicated her award to Shannon Tavarez, an 11-year-old actress who appeared on Broadway in “The Lion King,” and died of leukemia this past November. During Tavarez’ fight against leukemia, Rihanna urged her fans to donate bone marrow.

The DKMS 5th Annual Gala was emceed by Pharrell Williams, and attended by a slew of other celebrities, including Eva Mendes, Keri Hilson, and Cyndi Lauper.

For more information about fighting leukemia, go to the PKMS Website or Children Leukemia Foundation, an organization that has received the Humane Charity Seal of Approval.
