Taylor Swift, Cancer-Stricken Fan Have ‘Enchanted’ Meeting

Taylor Swift spent time Saturday (Jan. 19) granting the wish of a 17-year-old fan who has spent the last year battling brain cancer. Since December, Kayla Kincannon’s (pictured above) family, friends and sympathizers have been tweeting, posting on Facebook, and emailing anyone associated with the music industry, in hopes to setting up a meeting between the brave high school student and “Fearless” singer. This past weekend, that dream came true when Kayla flew to Tennessee to have lunch with Taylor and her mother, Andrea Swift.

“This was no quick meet and greet photo opp,” Kayla’s father Brad writes on his daughter’s blog. “We sat and talked to Taylor and her mom for two hours, had lunch and Kayla received a gift basket, then [Taylor] signed pictures! She is the sweetest, most down to earth person I have ever met! 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!”

According to Kayla’s family, the meeting with Taylor came to fruition through the help of the Michigan teen’s friends and social media followers, who were persistent in getting word to the superstar.

“Cannot believe I just had lunch [with Taylor Swift] today, I was enchanted to meet you! Lol” Kayla posted on her Twitter page after the meeting.
