Taylor Swift Has Lunch With Teen Fighting Cancer
11:30 am, January 27th | by Laura Donovan
Singer Taylor Swift may have a new album out and upcoming world tour, but when the 23-year-old heard that 17-year-old brain cancer victim Kayla Kincannon wanted to meet with her, the celebrity agreed to see the high school girl.
Toward the end of 2012, Kincannon’s friends and relatives started the #OperationGetKaylaToMeetTaylorSwift campaign, which resulted in the pop star setting up a lunch with the teen on Jan 19. The Michigan native’s father posted on the Team Kayla website:
“You guys have no idea how awesome this lunch was! This was no quick meet and greet photo opp. We sat and talked to Taylor and her mom for two hours, had lunch and Kayla received a gift basket, then she signed pictures! She is the sweetest, most down to earth person I have ever met! This was more than we ever expected! I’m so thankful to team Kayla, news, and everyone who made her dream come true! This was the best day ever for her and all of us!”
As to be expect, Kincannon was beyond thrilled to chat with Tay-Tay:
What a way to start the year!
