Looks like Drake isn't the only YMCMB rapper in the spirit of giving back this holiday season. Tyga recently stopped by the Children's Center for Cancer & Blood Diseases at Children's Hospital Los Angeles.

And for some of the hospital's patients, meeting Tyga was a
dream come true.
Sixteen-year-old Isael Lopez has already had 20 surgeries and needs a kidney transplant. While visiting the hospital, Tyga stopped by to visit Lopez and 60 children with rare cancer and blood diseases.
Lopez thinks highly of Tyga saying, " he is a good singer and also inspired me to write and compose music, but most of all because he is a good person to his fans."
In hopes of spreading some holiday cheer, Tyga went from room to room handing out Flips Audio Headphone X speakers, Music Bullet Speakers, Flipeez Action Hats, and clothing from his Last Kings clothing line.
Here's what Tyga had to say about his trip to the hospital:

"It's important to support nonprofit organizations like Children's Hospital Los Angeles-they take incredible care of our community, so I am honored to help make a difference for these children who are from the city I grew up in and to help encourage them and to bring a smile to their faces."

Here are some pictures below...

Tyga encourages people to check if they are a kidney donor for Isael, who needs a match to survive.
