On Monday, Emily Beazley, a fan of Taylor Swift, died at 12-years-old after battling cancer for four years.
It was only three weeks ago that the young fan was surprised with a phone call from her idol.
Emily mother’s, Nadia Beazley shared:
“My beautiful Emily got to use her angel wings. She fought hard to the end. Her last gift to me was passing peacefully. It hurts so much to imagine that I will never have another hug or kiss from my girl. Or hear her say ‘Mommy’ the special way that she does. This hurts so damn bad.”
Emily had battled with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma since she was 8-years-old — and her story inspired thousands of people online. A movement called, Emily’s Entourage, formed and gained the attention of Miz Swift.
Taylor called little Emily shortly after it was revealed in April that her own mother was diagnosed with cancer.
In regards to the call, Nadia stated:
“The smile on my daughter [is one] I have not seen in a very, very long time. I could cry.”
Aww! TSwift is known for reaching out to her sick fans — remember when she went on a date with a 19-year-old leukemia survivor? We definitely do.
Our hearts go out to Emily’s family and friends during this trying time.
