Tyga Turns to Social Media to Find Kidney for Sick Child
Getting into the holiday spirit, Tyga took a trip to the Children's Hospital of Los Angeles last Friday (Dec. 13) to shower sick kids with clothing, Flips headphones and music, says TMZ. But one thing he didn't expect to do was go on a mission to help a particular child find a much needed kidney.
After sitting with Isael Lopez, a 16-year-old sophmore at Baldwin Park High School in L.A. in desperate need of a kidney transplant, the YMCMB rapper turned to Instagram to ask his fans and followers for help. "Spent my day Today with one of my biggest fans Isael Lopez @steezzy_lowkz, a 16 year old @childrensla patient who is in need of a kidney transplant.He helped me give @flipsaudio holiday gifts to teens and tots battling cancer. Call 323 3615454 to find out if you are a kidney match for Isael. Www.donatelife.net"
Isael posted the image of him and Tyga to his Instagram page this past Friday (Dec. 20) saying, "Me and tyga at children's hospital c: i actually met him he was nice."
Beyond grateful for the Cali-bred MC's generosity, Lopez posted a message on he and Tyga's shared pic. "@isy_lowkz tyga my old account got hacked but i made a new one so follow me on my new one @kinggoldchains thanks for what your doing for me i appreciate it alot c: well thank you for visiting me at childrens hospital that day so follow me @isy_lowkz thats my new account c: @kinggoldchains"
