Nicki Minaj is mourning the loss of a six-year-old Washington D.C. girl who lost her fight against cancer. 

On Instagram, Nicki writes that she's heartbroken that Miyah Telemaque-Nelson passed away Monday after suffering from Burkitt's lymphoma. She expressed her shock at the loss, saying that she "can't believe this little angel is gone" because when she met her earlier this year Miyah seemed to be recovering. She also posted photos of the meeting in which Miyah wore a pink wig resembling those Nicki often wears. 

The two met through Washington Wizards star John Wall, who launched a social media campaign to get Nicki's attention. Wall also mourned Miyah on social media, writing that he's upset about her death, but knows "she's in a better place."
