Eighteen-Year-Old Cancer Patient Hoping to Take Taylor Swift to the Prom
Taylor Swift has made millions of fans smile around the world, but she has the chance to make one special 18-year-old boy’s senior prom really special. Kevin McGuire of Somderdale, NJ is battling a rare form of cancer for a second time. The drug that treats that form of cancer is in short supply, but Kevin is still determined to beat the disease according to Philadelphia Fox affiliate WTXF. He’s also hoping to take his celebrity crush, Taylor Swift, as his date to the prom this June, which just happens to fall on his birthday. To promote his cause, Kevin’s sister Victoria has started a Facebook page hoping to get Taylor’s attention. She wrote on the Facebook wall, “Through out his ups and downs Kevin never even questioned “why me? Nothing, and I mean NOTHING brightens Kevin’s day more than Taylor Swift. Kevin DESERVES more than anyone a special event in his life.” More than 12,000 people have “liked” the Facebook page so far.
