Los Angeles: Singer Taylor Swift has donated USD 50,000 to an 11-year-old fan, who is suffering from cancer.
Swiftie Naomi Oakes was planning to attend the "Shake It Off" hitmaker's August 18 concert with her best friend in Phoenix but her plan changed after she was diagnosed with Acute Myelogenous Leukemia on June 25, reported E!Online.
Naomi Oakes learned that she needs aggressive treatment resulting in her not being able to leave the hospital for six to nine months.
Her family made an inspiring video telling Naomi Oakes' story and her love for Swift, 25, in an attempt to reach the singer.
Two days after the video was uploaded on YouTube, Swift generously donated the hefty amount to her GoFundMe page writing, "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."
