Taylor Swift Meets Leukemia Patient for ACM Awards

Taylor Swift Meets Leukemia Patient for ACM Awards

After missing out on a date last year, Leukemia survivor Kevin McGuire finally got his chance to attend the ACM Awards with Taylor Swift on Sunday (April 7).

In 2012, the teenaged cancer patient asked the country crooner to be his prom date via a Facebook page and although Taylor couldn”t make her schedule work, she had something special in mind.

The 23-year-old singer invited him to be her date to the 2012 ACM Awards, but when that date came around, Kevin was struck with a chemo-induced fever.

After a shoutout to her missed connection at the ceremony, the “Love Story” singer invited him to next year”s event. A year long wait later, 2013″s ACM awards rolled around and he finally got his wish.

Sharing the experience with his supporters, Kevin”s “Taylor Swift go to Prom with Kevin Mcguire” Facebook page posted pics of the meeting. Speaking to CBS about his date, Kevin said, “I think Taylor is one of those people who you dont really see that often. Classy, sweet and kind.”
