Taylor Swift has a Very Special Date!

Taylor Swift Kevin McGuire

We all know how talented Taylor Swift is as an artist.  Is it any surprise that she’s just as darling as a person as well?
 
Jake McGuire is an 18-year-old high school student who has been battling leukemia since he was 13.  Knowing he was a huge fan of Taylor Swift, his sister formed a Facebook page calling for the singer to accompany Jake to his high school prom.  The group actually reached Taylor’s attention, and she even replied personally.  Unfortunately, she won’t be able to attend prom with Jake.  That isn’t the end of the story, however...

In lieu of going to his prom, Taylor sent out an invitation to Jake to escort her to this year’s ACM Awards!  The show is one of country music’s highest regarded awards ceremonies.  With Taylor Swift as his date, Jake has a lot to look forward in the near future.  Jake’s sister claimed that the singer’s music has been very supportive in helping him through his hardships.  

We think this is so amazing for Ms. Swift to take part in!
