Man, it's hard to be a hater when Taylor Swift does things like donate a ton of cash to a sick young fan.
T-Swift strikes again.
It's really easy to hate on Taylor Swift. Something about her bubbly positivity makes me kind of nauseous. There's no denying that what she does for her fans is pretty awesome, though. Yesterday, she donated $50,000 to Naomi, a young girl from Arizona who is currently in treatment for Acute Myelogenous Leukemia. Naomi was diagnosed with the disease earlier this summer, which requires 6-9 months of intensive care. Naomi's uncle, Brandon C. Adams, started a GoFundMe page to help cover the cost of his niece's expensive hospital bills. The family also started the hashtag #teamnaomi as a means of rallying support, and released a video about Naomi with the hopes of getting Swift's attention. Naomi is a devoted Swift fan, and was bummed that she'd have to miss her upcoming concert in Phoenix because of her treatment. Naomi even declared that Swift's "Bad Blood" was her official cancer fight song.
Luckily, the family's efforts worked; Swift made a $50,000 donation to Naomi's page and left the following message:
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.
The family then released a reaction video of Naomi's response to Taylor's message:
Okay, I guess Taylor Swift is kind of cool or whatever.
