Say what you like about how Kylie Jenner earned her millions – she sure knows how to put all that cash to good use.
The 21-year-old ‘baby boss’ has just donated a huge sum of money to her best friend, Jordyn Woods.
Woods’ father passed away having been diagnosed with cancer just two weeks prior.
John Woods was admitted to Los Robles ICU on December 17 after suffering from flu-like symptoms. There, he was diagnosed with meningitis and required to stay in the hospital for three weeks.
During that time, there was little to no improvement and John began undergoing numerous tests including CAT scans, MRIs, biopsies, blood tests and intubation.
After doctors noticed a lesion in John’s nose that caused some concern, he underwent a biopsy with earth-shattering results. Later, a liver biopsy revealed the family’s ‘worst fears’. John had stage 4 Adenocarcinoma which had spread to his pancreas, liver and brain.
My twin Soul. I wasn't going to share this with you guys but I know how powerful prayer is and I know I'm not the only one going through this. Last night I found out I'm not sure how much longer I am going to have with my father but I do know that with faith and God anything is possible. Don't forget to tell someone how much you love and care about them today.
The grieving family are now lumbered with expensive medical bills.
John’s wife, Elizabeth Woods, has set up a GoFundMe page in his memory to try and help raise money to keep the family afloat – and raise awareness for how important early diagnosis of cancer can be.
The campaign, John Woods; Wheels to Wings, honours the motorbike enthusiast. It’s goal is to raise $50,000 to cover the medical expenses.
Incredibly, the campaign has reached $18,000 in six days – largely thanks to the close friend of the Woods’ daughter – Kylie Jenner.
Amid the generous and heartfelt donations of $10 and $50 a touchingly simple message from Kylie reads, ‘I love you guys very much’.
Underneath declares a donation of $10,000.
The John Woods; Wheels to Wings GoFundMe page explains:
There is no life experience or script that prepares you to tell your kids that their Dad has terminal cancer and not long to live.
In these desperate times, it is always the support and love of close friends and family that will keep you from crumbling.
