Putting the millions to good use – Kylie Jenner donates $500,000 to build a hospital lounge for teens suffering from cancer

Kylie Jenner often makes headlines for her extravagant lifestyle. From owing a million-dollar purse collection to decking up daughter Stormi in Air Jordans and diamond studs for school- she has faced heavy criticism for her choices in the past. However, with her latest act of benevolence, the tables could very well turn in her favor.

The diva recently donated a sum of $500,000 to build a hospital lounge for teens with cancer. The contribution was made in honor of her longtime pal and musician Harry Hudson, who was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 2013 ( which he luckily overcame) and will be utilized to construct a patient space called the ‘Hey, I’m Here For You Teen Lounge.

Commenting on it, Harry Hudson, in a statement, said, “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.’

He further added, ‘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.’

Kylie was also condemned for not contributing enough to a GoFundMe supporting her injured former makeup artist in the recent past. But with her hefty donation to Pete Townshend’s Teen Cancer America, the celebrity may have spun around the narrative for good. Here’s hoping to see more on her benevolence in the time to come!
