Young Money's Tyga is determined to help better the life of someone he met during a recent Los Angeles Chldren's Hospital visit by going on a kidney search.
According to reports, Tyga's unexpected challenge came from hearing a story from one of the hospital's patients.
Tyga is on a mission to find a kidney, ASAP ... and it's all because he's determined to help a sick kid he met during a recent visit to an L.A. Children's Hospital ... TMZ has learned. We know ... Tyga recently surprised 60 kids with all sorts of gifts and goodies, including fresh clothing, music and Flips headphones. But during the visit, the rapper spent some time with a brave kid named Isael ... who's hoping to find a kidney donor so he can have a life-saving transplant. We're told Tyga was so moved by Isael's story, he swore he would do everything he could to help the kid find a match. (TMZ)
Tyga has also used social media outlets like Instagram to rally up support.

Back in October, Tyga celebrated his son's birthday with longtime girlfriend Blac Chyna.
Tyga brought Disneyland to his backyard to celebrate his son King Cairo's 1st birthday on Saturday. The "Rack City" rapper and his baby mama Blac Chyna spared no expense while spoiling their first child. They converted their Calabasas mansion into Mickey's Clubhouse, complete with a petting zoo, piñata, and Disney characters including Mickey, Minnie, Pluto, Goofy, and Donald, who entertained the kids. The Kardashians including Kim and Kourtney showed up, along with new mom LoLa Monroe. (Rap-Up)
Last April, the Young Money stud revealed how things all started between him and Chyna.
"I met her at the strip club," Tyga added, when asked how he hooked up with Chyna. "When I first met her, it was hard to see her. I was on the road -- I think we had a party over there at [King of Diamonds strip club] and she gave me her number." ("The Breakfast Club")
