Kylie Jenner Donates $500,000 to Help Teens Undergoing Cancer Treatment

Kylie Jenner is giving back to help teens undergoing cancer treatment.

The 23-year-old makeup mogul and reality star has donated $500,000 to help build a new lounge space at the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt in Nashville, Tenn.

Kylie‘s donation, along with money from rockers Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend’s Teen Cancer America, will build the “Hey, I’m Here For You Teen Lounge” in honor of Kylie‘s close friend Harry Hudson.

Harry has been a longtime close friend to Kylie and the rest of the Kardashian-Jenner family. Back in 2013, he was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Kylie was by Harry‘s side as he underwent treatment. Luckily, Harry was able to overcome his diagnosis.

In 2017, Kylie announced that she would celebrate her birthday that year by raising funds for Teen Cancer America through the sales of her Kylie Cosmetics Birthday Collection.

“I am so grateful for Kylie‘s friendship and the impact she’s had on my life and my cancer journey,” Harry said in a press release via People. “She has always been there for me, and together, we wanted to figure out a way to be there for other young people who are battling this disease.”

The Hey, I’m Here For You Teen Lounge, which is named after the cancer organization that Harry founded, will include a big screen TV, video games, a meditation room, and space for patients to interact and connect with one another.

“With the help of Teen Cancer America, we were able to contribute the first Hey, I’m Here For You Teen lounge at Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt — a comfortable space for young people undergoing treatment to pursue their passions,” Harry continued in his press release. “This is a full-circle moment for me, and I am excited to continue growing my partnership with Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt and TCA.”

If you missed it, it was just recently revealed that Harry is dating this tech mogul’s daughter!
