Once again, Taylor Swift opens her heart and her sizable wallet for a fan in need.
A string of donations left on a GoFundMe page for a young leukemia patient point to the pop star possibly donating a total of $50,000 to help cover the 11-year-old fan’s medical expenses.
The donations come a little over a week after Brandon C. Adams created a GoFundMe page to raise money for his niece Naomi Oakes’s unexpected medical needs. Naomi, who lives with her family in San Tan Valley, Arizona, was recently diagnosed with Acute Myelogenous Leukemia. Her family was seeking $30,000 to help cover costs of treatment.
Last Christmas, Naomi’s parents gave her tickets to see Swift in concert in August. As the treatment will require six to nine months of intensive therapy, she’ll be unable to attend.
In a video published online on Sunday, Naomi’s father revealed that Swift’s “Bad Blood” has become his daughter’s personal theme song in the aftermath of her diagnosis.
On Tuesday, donations under the name Taylor Swift appeared with the message: “To the beautiful and brave Naomi, I’m sorry you have to miss it, but there will always be more concerts. Let’s focus on getting you feeling better. I’m sending the biggest hugs to you and your family.”
Adams has since shared video of Naomi’s heartening reaction to the generous donations.
