Taylor Swift - Taylor Swift Meets Cancer Survivor Fan At Acm Awards

Taylor Swift invited a cancer survivor to the Academy of Country Music (Acm) Awards on Sunday (07Apr13) after he was too sick to attend the event as her date last year (12).

The sister of Kevin MCGuire reached out to the singer via Facebook.com back in February 2012 and asked her to go to prom with her brother, who was battling leukaemia, but the superstar was busy on the night - so she offered to take him to the Acm Awards instead.

The teen was hospitalised with a fever just two days before the 2012 country prizegiving but Swift made good on her promise this year (13) - and the event turned into a celebration of MCGuire's successful bone marrow transplant.

MCGuire and his family travelled to Las Vegas over the weekend (07Apr13) and met with Swift as she prepared to hit the red carpet, and he later donned a suit and tie to accompany her to the glitzy ceremony.

MCGuire's sister Tori posted photos of her grinning brother posing with the Love Story hitmaker along with the caption, "The moment we have all been waiting for!"

She added, "It is great how this all worked out, it truly came full circle; Kevin is fully healthy this year and will be able to enjoy everything! Thank you for being a part of our journey!"
