Taylor Swift brought a smile to 10-year-old fans face before her show in Detroit earlier this week. The young fan, named Izzy, suffers from heart defects, and, according to her mother’s blog, she’d listen to Taylor’s music to help her get through the pain.
Izzy’s mom wrote a message to Taylor on her blog, asking her to make the show the best just for Izzy, and Taylor did more than that. After Izzy’s mom’s blog was picked up by local news stations, she was given meet-and-greet passes, and got to pose for a photo with her favorite singer.
“Izzy was speechless. Floored,” her mom wrote about the moment she realized she was going to meet Taylor. “We have never, ever seen her this way. She freaked out completely," adding, "A moment never to be forgotten. Dreams really do come true!!!!"
