Say what you want about Taylor Swift, but she’s good to her fans.
On January 19th, Swift and her mother had lunch with 17y-year-old cancer patient Kayla Kincannon and her family.
The Michigan native’s family friends launched a campaign on Twitter to grab Swift’s attention (#OperationGetKaylaToMeetTaylorSwift), and after the meeting, Kayla’s dad Brad posted on their site.
“You guys have no idea how awesome this lunch was!” he wrote, according to E! Online. “This was no quick meet and greet photo opp. We sat and talked to Taylor and her mom for two hours, had lunch and Kayla received a gift basket, then she signed pictures!
“She is the sweetest, most down-to-earth person I have ever met!” he continued. “This was more than we ever expected! I’m so thankful to team Kayla, news, and everyone who made her dream come true! This was the best day ever for her and all of us!”
A day before they got together, Swift’s mom made the arrangements, including a stop to pick up Kayla in Swift’s tour bus.
“Can not believe I just had lunch w @taylorswift13 today,” Kincannon tweeted afterwards. ”I was enchanted to meet you!”
