The reality TV star met with six-year-old Oran to boost his spirits as part of her volunteer work for the Starlight Children's Foundation, which grant wishes for seriously ill children.
Hilton spent time chatting with the youngster and introduced him to her pets, and later uploaded photos of the special visit to her website.
In a series of posts on her Twitter page, she writes: "Amazing to spend some time with Oran today, a very special 6 year old boy - love helping starlightmagic! Helping Starlightmagic bring smiles to some very special kids like Oran.
"You can too... Do something great today, help Starlightmagic grant the wishes of brave kids like Oran. All my animals loved Oran today. He is the coolest & smartest 6 year old I've ever met!"
