Once again, Taylor Swift proves that she’s one of the best humans ever.
After an 11-year-old fan was diagnosed with leukemia, Taylor Swift showed her support with a $50,000 donation to help with her treatment.
In June, Naomi Oakes and her family went to the hospital after noticing large bruises on the 11-year-old’s legs and torso. After being examined by medical personnel, Naomi was diagnosed with acute myelogenous leukemia on June 25.
“[Doctors] said this was the type of leukemia they were hoping not to find. It is more aggressive than other kinds and will require 6-9 months [sic] of intensive therapy in the hospital,” Chris Adams, Naomi’s uncle, wrote on her GoFundMe page.
Since Naomi will be in the hospital for 6-9 months, the 11-year-old will have to miss the Taylor Swift concert on August 18 in Phoenix, which her parents bought her tickets to as a Christmas gift.
But being a major Taylor Swift fan, it was only fitting that Naomi picked the pop star’s latest hit “Bad Blood” as her battle anthem during her treatment.
Swift, however, did something much more unexpected: she made a $50,000 donation to help cover Naomi’s medical expenses.
After Swift’s donation, funds for Naomi’s treatment reached over $72,000, far surpassing the campaign’s original $30,000 goal.
