Kim Kardashian West Shares How One 9-Year-Old Girl Inspired Her to Be Brave
A young girl's generosity and kindness has inspired Kim Kardashian West
Kim Kardashian Wests wants fans to meet one brave little girl who is standing up to cancer in a big way.
On Tuesday, the 35-year-old took to her website and app to share “Kim’s Kauses” – a post she dedicated to a 9-year-old girl who not only created a GoFundMe page to support cancer victims, but also shaved and donated her hair to an organization that makes wigs for children who have lost theirs due to cancer treatments.
“One of Kanye’s best friends, 88-Keys, has a daughter named Chloë who decided she would #standup2cancer!,” the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star’s post began. “In solidarity with her close friend, Erica, who is battling cancer, she cut off all her hair. Her kindness and generosity is so inspiring and I wanted to share it with you.”
A passage was then inserted into the blog that Chloë had written for her campaign page on GoFundMe, explaining why she decided to cut off her hair.
“Watching her battle cancer and go through chemotherapy made me sad and mad, because she shouldn’t have to go through this, but it also inspired me to want to do something to help,” Chloë’s message said. “So, today I cut off all my hair to show my friend how much I love her and that I will be here to support her– no matter what.”
“I’m so happy to spread the word about this amazing girl!” Kardashian West added. “She is also raising money for cancer treatment and cancer research organizations. If you’re interested in supporting the campaign, you can visit the Cancer Sucks: Chloë Takes a Stand page! Don’t forget to share the link!”
Proud father 88-Keys also shared sweet photos of his daughter on Twitter and Instagram thanking everyone for their donations, as well as photographer Krista Njapa who took the stunning transformation photos.
