Every Taylor Swift concert has its share of special guests and surprise performances. And at a recent Atlanta concert, in addition to a performance from Tove Lo, Swift gave a young fan fighting cancer the thrill of a lifetime.
The fan, also named Taylor, was invited backstage after the concert, where she got the chance to pose for a photo and talk with Swift. And the opportunity is credited to Andrea, Swift’s mother, who spotted young Taylor while watching the show and orchestrated the meet up.
Young Taylor’s mother shared her experience at Swift’s concert on her Facebook page, which is dedicated to helping the 6-year-old beat the rare form of kidney cancer she’s currently battling. In addition to meeting the star backstage, they also got to enjoy a song while sitting next to Mama Swift and the rest of Taylor’s entourage.
After the concert, Swift memorialized her meeting with young Taylor on social media, including her in a collage of different moments from the Atlanta performance.
According to Taylor’s mother, Allison Rayburn, Swift is “just like you see on TV” and she’s surrounded by the “sweetest” and “humblest” friends and family. And after this adorable meeting, that’s easy to believe.
