Taylor Swift CONTINUES to be awesome!!
The country girl with the big heart visited Lauren Hacker at Omaha’s Children’s Hospital & Medical Center.
Lauren is an 11-year-old girl who is battling a form of leukemia. But even though the little lady is battling cancer - she still was SUPER excited for her favorite singer to come visit her!!
Here's what the little girl's father wrote:
"First off, I know word has already started to spread, but for those of you who haven’t heard, Taylor Swift did come to visit Lauren yesterday afternoon. How AWESOME is that? Now to the details…Taylor Swift stopped by Lauren's room at the hospital around 1 pm in the afternoon. She spent about an hour chatting with Lauren and Jonathan. Jonathan played a song on the ukulele for her. Lauren got in on the act and played a song on the electronic piano key board that she got for her birthday. Taylor was very impressed with both performances. I don't mean "polite impressed". I mean "real impressed". Taylor shared stories from her childhood as she was getting her start as an entertainer and she told us all about the special stage designs of her new show. She posed for photos with everyone. And, in case you are not aware, she is a very photogenic young lady. Just before she had to leave, Taylor got out a bag of goodies for Lauren and provided autographs on notebooks, photographs and guitar picks. Finally, she signed a special autograph to Jonathan on the front of the ukulele. It was a great afternoon for everyone and I'm sure Lauren will remember it for many years to come. So, to Taylor Swift, from a very grateful dad, thanks for brightening our day!"
Later on the papa detailed how Taylor's visit had affected his little girl! He said:
"It is hard to come down off of the Taylor Swift high. The weekend couldn't have been any better. Lauren has delighted in telling her friends about her experience. She has been bubbly and smiling most of the time. She is feeling so much better on this round of chemotherapy. Although it started off rough, the illness has tapered. But, I am sure getting to meet her idol has helped tremendously. Taylor is definitely good medicine. I am thrilled that Lauren chose to love someone so dear and gracious. Taylor's mom, Andrea, has so much to proud of. I was very inspired when Taylor's mom and I were talking about what a nice young woman she had raised and she said, 'I told her that this experience didn't need to change who she was.' I told Andrea that I had told Lauren the same thing about having leukemia. It was such a special visit because she was very present in the moment. It was like welcoming a new friend into our family and spending some time getting to know her. I was so focused on getting Taylor to meet Lauren to put a spark in Lauren and help her fight leukemia, but I had no idea she would inspire the whole family. She came at a perfect time for our all of us."
We have to admit that this was the most awesomest thing that ever so far happened this year.
It is going to be hard to beat Taylor's kind spirit and tender heart.
She's the best!!
