About Rehanna’s Warriors: Rehanna's Warriors was started in honor of Rehanna Nicole Lydon. Diagnosed at 8-years-old with a rare muscle cancer, she bravely fought through radiation and chemotherapy. At 11-years-old she passed away, on August 1st, 2011. Rehanna’s bravery beyond her years inspired people around her and has inspired
us to continue the fight against cancer in her name.
