Taylor Swift Reveals Her Mother Has Cancer, And Urges Moms Everywhere To Get Checked
Posted by GreaterGoodness
They’re the people we think of as invincible, but much as it may seem otherwise, celebrities are not immune to the trials of life. No matter who you are, cancer doesn’t care. In the case of Taylor Swift, it’s touched one of the people closest to her: her mother.
Says Swift in a post on her Tumblr:
I’m saddened to tell you that my mom has been diagnosed with cancer. I’d like to keep the details of her condition and treatment plans private, but she wanted you to know.
This is the star’s best friend, and she and her mom have a very specific reason for you to get checked:
…parents may be too busy juggling everything they’ve got going on to go to the doctor, and maybe you reminding them to go get checked for cancer could possibly lead to an early diagnosis and an easier battle… Or peace of mind in knowing that they’re healthy and there’s nothing to worry about. [My mother] wanted you to know why she may not be at as many shows this tour. She’s got an important battle to fight.
Cancer can affect anyone. Get checked, and click below to help mothers facing the crisis of breast cancer. Because the world needs more people who can dance and sing the difficulties away, like Taylor.
We wish the Swift family and everyone facing this battle the very best.
