Taylor Swift - Young Cancer Patient In Omaha Treated To Visit From Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift recently met with a young fan, who is in hospital receiving treatment for cancer. 10 year-old Lauren Hacker received a real treat when the Grammy award-winning singer popped by the hospital in Omaha to wish Lauren well. Lauren’s friends set up a YouTube video, pleading with Taylor to come and see Lauren, entitled “Come See Lauren, Please Taylor” and Swift can be seen in photos taken by the Omaha World-Herald, hugging Lauren in her hospital room, posing next to a keyboard.

Lauren’s father, Phil Hacker, wrote about the visit on Lauren’s Caring Bridge blog, where he wrote “Taylor Swift stopped by Lauren's room at the hospital around 1 p.m. in the afternoon. She spent about an hour chatting with Lauren…Lauren got in on the act and played a song on the electronic piano keyboard that she got for her birthday."

According to the blog, Lauren was also treated to some childhood anecdotes, as Taylor recounted Lauren to a few tales of her attempts to get into the music business as a kid. "Taylor shared stories from her childhood as she was getting her start as an entertainer…Just before she had to leave, Taylor got out a bag of goodies for Lauren and provided autographs on notebooks, photographs and guitar picks…It was a great afternoon for everyone and I'm sure Lauren will remember it for many years to come." Lauren a fifth grader, is suffering from acute myelocytic leukemia.”
