Watch an 11-Year-Old Find Out Taylor Swift Donated to Her Cancer Fight

Subscribe to PopCrush on

Taylor Swift has been happy to reach out to sick fans in the past, but as for helping them pay for treatment? Well, that’s a beautiful new frontier.

On Sunday, an 11-year-old named Naomi Oakes, who’s been battling leukemia since last month, recorded a “Bad Blood”-themed video (with her dad’s help) that chronicled some early procedures, and identified the tune as Oakes’ “personal fight song.” Oakes, who’s got six to nine months of treatment ahead of her, immediately garnered the attention of Swifties far and wide, who tried to direct T. Swift’s attention to the clip in hopes the singer might give Oakes a shout out on Instagram with a #TeamNaomi mention. Welp, Swift did the young lady one better.

In the clip above, you can see Naomi getting a personal message from her hero, in which Swift also vows to donate $50,000 to her fan’s fight. Because of Oakes’ condition, she’s unable to see Swift’s upcoming show in Phoenix, but Swift assured her there would be more shows to come, and her health and healing were priorities.

“I seriously think I’m gonna pass out right now,” Oakes insists as she reads the message. Her parents and the medical professionals around her can’t help but giggle.

Check out the video above to see some real do-goodery, and if you’re interested in learning more about Naomi’s condition, or would like to contribute to treatment, yourself, check out her GoFundMe page.
