(AllHipHop News) Kim Kardashian is giving back in a major way.

With cancer continuing to haunt the lives of roughly 38% of the population, the social media influencer has offered her hand in supporting the Kickstarter campaign for Cancer University.

Kim’s father Robert Kardashian, who is best known as one of the attorneys defending O.J. Simpson, passed away from esophageal cancer in 2003, within 8 weeks of his diagnoses.

The Kickstarter project benefits cancer patients and caregivers, with the potential to improve millions of lives across the world.

In order for the vision to become a reality, Cancer U’s innovative new online platform has one week to raise $50K by November 8th.

Kim has pledged to offer more support if Cancer U is able to raise at least 75% of its goal.

Last month, Kanye West and his father ate a plate of bugs to celebrate his father Ray "beating cancer."
