Eat this, anyone who says Kim Kardashian and Kanye West only care about fame! The duo called up one of Kanye's young fans on Jan. 1, and the reason why will have you balling. "This girl in my town had cancer and Kanye called her a couple days ago to rap for her," wrote a fan on Twitter. "I think Kim was there too. Wasn’t even blasted on social media or anything."
We are praying for her family. 🙏🏽 https://t.co/pjEUhPboFb

Kim confirmed the touching news by saying "We are praying for her family. ??." Sadly, the young fan died soon after their conversation. "She passed yesterday," said the fan. "I have so much respect for him tho. Making her happy in her last moments." Another person talked about the kind gesture, saying "Kanye did the same thing for a girl from my school who had cancer. She, unfortunately, passed away also a few days ago," he later learned it was the same girl.
After chatting via FaceTime, the little girl allegedly asked Kanye if he would rap his bonus track "Kanye Loves Kanye" for her, according to TMZ. Of course, he gladly made her dream come true and gave her a private performance.
Fans were thrilled to hear what Kim and Kanye did for the girl, writing, "Love seeing the good deeds you have been doing on KUWTK. You have a strong humanitarian side and an empathic voice. Can't wait to see you use your platform to influence more good in the world." Another agreed, tweeting, "Thank you West family, you made someone's day brighter much respect and love to Kim and Kanye."
Perhaps the pair was feeling extra tender in the new year after their son Saint West's health scare after Christmas. The two-year-old was hospitalized with a bad case of pneumonia and spent days in the hospital with his mom and dad by his side. Our hearts go out to the young fan's family in this difficult time.
