In honor of her long-time friend and singer Harry Hudson, Kylie Jenner is helping teens undergoing cancer treatment. Harry is also a cancer survivor.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star, 23, made a donation of $500,000 and funds from nonprofit organization Teen Cancer America to develop a new lounge space at Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt.
According to a release, the place is made for the people who have unique needs of adolescent and young adult cancer patients.

The Billionaire first time donated money for the lounge in 2017 when she had decided that on her birthday she will raise money for Teen Cancer America with the help of the sales of her Kylie Cosmetics Birthday Collection.
In the press release, the mother-of-one said, “Teen Cancer America is an incredible organization, and I’m so blessed that I was introduced to it through Harry. It’s been an incredible process to see this come to life, and I send well wishes to all patients and their families.”
The new lounge is known as “Hey, I’m Here For You Teen Lounge,” and there is a big-screen TV, a meditation room, video games and has a big space for the patients to comfortably talk with each other.
Back in 2013, the “Yellow Lights” singer was diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma. After surviving that phase, he went on to start his own charity for teens with cancer, also called Hey, I’m Here For You.
“I am so grateful for Kylie’s friendship and the impact she’s had on my life and my cancer journey. 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,” Hudson said in the release.
“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. 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,” he added.
