Swiftmas has begun! Taylor Swift made a fan’s day when she popped in for a surprise visit! Delaney Clements is a Taylor Swift fan who has been battling cancer for the past five years. A couple of weeks ago, her family got some devastating news, but Taylor was able to brighten up her day with a visit.
Delaney’s mom shared the sad news a couple of weeks ago:
You never know how strong you are until strong is the only choice you have.
The last couple of days have been a whirl wind of emotions for us. And we are still trying to grasp the reality that we have reached an impasse.
Sunday Delaney was having severe headaches and her head was very tender in several spots. After a trip to the ER we discovered that the cancer in her body had made the jump to her head. Something we had been able to avoid for so many years. She has two separate tumors pressing on her brain.
Unfortunately her body will not be able to sustain any more chemotherapy and the treatment we were on was not working.
Tomorrow we will begin a 5 day treatment of radiation to help relieve some of the pressure of the tumor off her brain then we will go home and begin hospice care.
Oh My Goodness. “I’m sorry” feels like such an inadequate response to news like this. You can read her entire post on Facebook.
Delaney had amassed a strong social media following, so they started a #DelaneyMeetTaylor hashtag to get Taylor’s attention. Taylor was listening ;).
I was just laying down taking a nap in my room when my mom said I had a visitor. And I thought it might just be another person coming to see how I was. Then suddenly the most amazing miracle happens… The Taylor Swift walked into my bedroom and spent the afternoon with me just talking and hanging!!!! I am beyond Blessed for everyone’s help and support!!! Thank you!!!Happy holidays!!😍💙☃ @taylorswift #Delaneymeettaylor @bryyleiigh
