MEMPHIS, Tenn. — St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital received a massive donation to help in the fight against childhood cancer.

More than $100 million was raised by K-Mart, which is more than any other partner in the hospital’s history.

On Monday, the hospital, K-Mart and rapper Ne-Yo came together to celebrate with the patients and their families.

“I’m ecstatic to be in the presence of this amount of generosity. You don’t see stuff like this every day especially now-a-days so I wanna personally thank K-Mart.. and thank St. Jude for the amazing things they’ve been doing,” the singer/songwriter said before hanging out with the patients.

The kids were able to play games in the virtual reality bus, get custom air-brushed bandanas, take pictures at a photo booth, and received gift bags full of treats.
