Milk Tyson, who for many years was known in the A-list crowd as a bad boy socialite, running a celebrity based medical marijuana company, has now declared war on cancer in children.
Tyson is most notably known for being BFF’s with Justin Bieber during the singer’s party days, and was often seen hanging with the likes of Diddy, Kelly Osbourne and others.
Now, the former dealer has decided to devote his time to making dreams come true for children suffering from cancer.
Tyson’s charity, called FAM, stands for Fighting All Monsters and and focuses on children and families battling life-threatening diseases. Tyson is trying to get celebrities involved, similar to the Make-A-Wish foundation.
In some cases, we’re told the requests are a simple meet and greet with a of the star. Over the past few years, Tyson has already traveled the world visiting kids with cancer, helping with medical costs and drumming up a spotlight for the kids.
Even though he started self funding the dream requests years ago, he decided to officially launch the charity this week. Through his work, he was able to help out by facilitating a meeting between a young boy and Pharrell, and also set up for Los Angeles Dodgers star Justin Turner to bring a young fan battling cancer onto the field at Dodger Stadium.
The most recent call to action taken by Tyson was a 12-year-old girl named Vara Gordon who, we’re told, reached out to Milk to try and get on James Corden‘s popular Carpool Karaoke show.
Cara Delevinge reposted video of Vara singing her own version of carpool karaoke, and asked if she could come on the show with the group. And with the help of Tyson’s social media, the youngster got a response from Corden that he would be getting in touch to bring her on the show.
