Taylor Swift Pays a Visit To Teen Battling Cancer
A 13-year-old Colorado girl who's been battling cancer for five years had her greastest wish granted over the weekend when pop star Taylor Swift paid her a visit.
Delaney Clements was diagnosed with neuroblastoma at just 8 years old. Soon after her mother posted the grave news that the cancer had spread to Delaney's brain, Grand Junction radio station Mix 104.3 started a campaign to fulfill her dream of meeting Swift.
"The community of Grand Junction has jumped onboard with the hashtag campaign #DelaneyMeetTaylor to help this effort," the station wrote this month. "Let’s give Delaney the best Christmas wish a girl could ask for."
Just in time for Christmas, Delaney's wish came true.
"Literally speechless right now!!!!! My new best friend ( as I call her now ) made a special stop from going home to Tennessee and surprised me and gave me the best present/ hugg ever!! Thank you !! I love you!! Happy holidays!!" she wrote.
While understandably shocked, Delaney has hosted celebrities before. According to KMGH, the teen has also received autographs on her head from Jeffrey Donovan of "Burn Notice" and Denver Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker.
