Kylie Jenner gave $500,000 to create a state-of-the-art hospital lounge for teen cancer patients that was unveiled on Wednesday.
The reality star and makeup mogul donated the funds to support her friend, singer-songwriter Harry Hudson — who was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 2017.
The donation — with money from rockers Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend’s Teen Cancer America — led to the “Hey, I’m Here For You Teen Lounge” at the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt in Nashville.
The lounge is named after Hudson’s cancer charity, as well as the title of his 2020 album.
A source told us, “When Harry was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 2017, one of the things that really struck him and his best friend Kylie, who sat with Harry through his chemo treatments, was that there was a great need to give more emotional support to teenagers and keep them hopeful and inspired during the process.”
The pal added, “One of the things that Kylie and Harry found to be equally important as the science was the ability to treat the patient, specifically the teenage demographic, in a space that reflected positivity and healing.”
The lounge includes video games, a big screen TV with streaming capabilities, a meditation room, and more.
Hudson said in a statement: “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.”
Jenner, 23, said in 2017 that she would celebrate her birthday by raising funds for Teen Cancer America with Hudson via sales from her makeup line.
The Post reported earlier this year that Hudson was dating Eve Jobs, the youngest daughter of late Apple whiz Steve Jobs.
Jenner, the CEO of Kylie Cosmetics, is worth a reported $900 million. Last year, she donated $1 million to one of her physicians, Dr. Thaïs Aliabadi, to “help us buy hundreds of thousands of masks, face shields, and other protective gear” during the pandemic, the doc said.
