Taylor Swift donates $50,000 to fan to fight cancer

Los Angeles, July 8 (IANS) Singer Taylor Swift has donated $50,000 to an 11-year-old girl fan, who is battling cancer.

The fan, Swiftie Naomi Oakes, wanted to attend Swift’s concert with her best friend in Phoenix on August 18. But her plan took a drastic turn when she was diagnosed with Acute Myelogenous Leukemia on June 25 and was required to undergo aggressive treatment, which restricted her from leaving the hospital for six to nine months.

Oakes’s family made a video narrating her story and her love for Swift in an attempt to reach the singer. In the video, they ask Swift’s fan club to help spread the word on social media.

Two days after the video was uploaded on video-sharing site YouTube, Swift donated $50,000 to Oakes’s GoFundMe page with a heart-warming message, reports eonline.com.

The message read: “To the beautiful and brave Naomi, I’m sorry you have to miss it, but there will always be more concerts. Let’s focus on getting you feeling better. I’m sending the biggest hugs to you and your family.”
