Taylor Swift Finally Meets Teen Who Battled Cancer

Facebook.com/pages/Taylor-Swift-Go-to-Prom-with-Kevin-McguireYou may remember that last year, there was an online campaign for Taylor Swift to accompany a New Jersey teen stricken with leukemia to his prom. She couldn't make it, but she invited Kevin McGuire to the ACM Awards. However, he was unable to attend the Las Vegas ceremony due to a fever.

Fast forward to Sunday night, when Taylor and Kevin, now 19, met prior to the 2013 ACM Awards, according to a Facebook page devoted to McGuire's goal.  The page also features photos of Kevin's meeting with Taylor.

Kevin told the New Jersey Courier-Post on Thursday that he wanted to thank Taylor for giving him hope while battling leukemia for a second time: "When you’re told you have cancer again, just giving me something to look forward [to], to feel special, was enough."
