We’ve said it before, Taylor Swift is the BEST. She’s generous, sweet, lovely and absolutely loves her fans. So if you didn’t know from her previous actions, her latest act of kindness will grab you and kick you right in the feels. Because, once again, Taylor proved why she’s basically a saint. (Well, after Saint Denise Richards, who put up with Charlie Sheen‘s crap for countless years.)
In June, 11-year-old Naomi Oakes was diagnosed with acute myelogenous leukemia, but she was going to fight it with everything she had. And her theme song was, aptly, “Bad Blood.” A video telling Naomi’s story was posted on YouTube, along with the sad fact that the Swifty wouldn’t be able to make the singer’s concert in August because she would be going through aggressive treatment that involves her being hospitalized for six to nine months.
The hashtag #TeamNaomi started, in an effort to get Taylor to post the girl a message on Instagram. But, please. That’s child’s play. You know Swift was going to step up further.
Two days after the video went up, Swift (whose own mother is battling cancer) donated $50,000 to Oakes’ Go Fund Me page, which was set up by her uncle to raise money for her medical expenses.
And Naomi’s reaction? Just what you might expect.
The. Best. Now, go, grab a tissue. And while you’re at it, can you pass us a couple?
