Heart-breaking tributes have flooded in for a mother who died from cancer after a two-year battle.

Rhianna Ferguson, 26, who passed away last week, leaves behind a beloved three-year-old daughter called Nova-Noelle.

The mum-of-one was diagnosed with renal medullary carcinoma in October 2016 and told she may only have months to live.

Despite undergoing surgery to remove a kidney, the disease spread to her spine, the Manchester Evening News reports.

She tragically died in her sleep last Tuesday night.

Rhianna’s sister paid a heart-wrenching tribute to her sibling, describing how “hard she had fought” against the cancer.

She also said little Nova-Noelle was “ Rhianna part two”.

Sister Renacia told the MEN: “Rhianna was the most thoughtful diva in the world, she knew how to get her own way but she always helped anyone.

“Rhianna would always pay, she was always giving, but she was always putting a smile on someone’s face.

“Whether it was laughing with her or at her she would be making someone laugh. She was just one in a million.

“Everything she was will live on through her daughter, the Rhianna part two.

“She will be everything Rhianna was and more and continue to make her mum proud.”

Renacia also paid tribute to her sister in a post on Facebook .

She wrote: “As some of you may know my sister Rhianna Ferguson passed away last night in her sleep.

“Breaks my heart to even write those words. She was always my right arm and my biggest inspiration.

“She gave the fight of her life and I’m so proud to call her my sister.

“She fought so hard but Rhianna, you said you were tired of this and wanted it to be over.

“I know we never thought it would be over this way, but I just want to hug you and tell you everything is going to be OK, you’re not in pain no more you don’t have to fight no more.

“Nova-Noelle will ALWAYS know what and amazing mummy she has and how much you loved her.

“She’s just like you Rhianna, a Rhianna part two, so I know she will be OK and just as strong as her mummy and make you proud.

“All I can say is just rest now Rhianna cos God knows you deserve it just rest and be at peace, because you haven’t had that for years.

“I love you so much and I’m so happy to have had a sister who taught me so much.

“I will make you proud, we all will.

“I will see you soon Rhianna. Love you with every single bone in my body.”

Rhianna, from Partington, Trafford, had previously spoken out about her cancer diagnosis as she attempted to raise £60,000 for revolutionary treatment at a private clinic in Germany.

Speaking to the MEN in 2016, she said: “I had the kidney removed and they said, hopefully that will be the end of it.

“It’s one of the rarest forms of kidney cancer and nothing works for it. The longest survivor has lived for eight years.

“It’s incurable at the moment. When I first found out it was horrible. My life flashed before me.

“My daughter is only one and I just kept thinking I would miss her life. I will do anything I can to beat this. I have done everything to change my lifestyle – I’ve even become vegan.”

Pals have also paid tribute to Rhianna following her death.

Sharon Hamoudi wrote on Facebook: “So sad to hear of the passing of a beautiful young lady Rhianna Ferguson. We laugh we cried together I shall never forget you.

“May you fly with the Angels and shine like a star.”

Meanwhile, Danielle Garsia posted: “So shocked and sad to hear that you lost your battle with cancer Rhiana Ferguson.

“You were such a beautiful soul taken far to young you fought it right to the end.

“My thoughts and condolences go to your family and of course little Nova your legacy will go on in her.

“You inspired so many others who followed your story of strength through such a difficult time.

“Another beautiful soul taken.

“No more fighting you can rest in peace.”
