Taylor Swift Invites Cancer Survivor to 2013 ACMs [Pics]
We never had our doubts that Taylor Swift is a stand-up citizen, but this is just solidifying her induction into the Good Person Hall of Fame. It took a whole entire year, but Kevin McGuire, the teen with cancer, finally got to go on a date with T. Swift!
Originally, McGuire invited Taylor to his prom, but since she is a huge superstar, she couldn’t make it, but she countered his offer to accompany her to the ACM Awards! Unfortunately, when the 2012 ACMs rolled around, Kevin fell ill and wasn’t able to make it. Fast forward and not only is Kevin (most importantly) healthy, but he and his family finally got the opportunity to meet Taylor and the New Jersey native was off to escort Swift to the 2013 ACMs!
McGuire’s family posted on his Facebook page, “The president of the award show — Mr. Romeo — has been in touch with our family checking on Kevin since his transplant, and invited us a couple months ago! As soon as we land in Vegas we are meeting up with TAYLOR SWIFT!'”
McGuire was obviously ecstatic about meeting the pop/country superstar, tweeting:
If you guys think she’s pretty in pictures, I can’t tell you how stunning she is in real life. twitter.com/mmcguirek/stat…

A year truly made all the difference as Kevin’s family noted on their Facebook saying, “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 apart of our journey!”
We’re happy that Kevin is feeling better and got to fulfill one of his dreams. We wish him the best in his recovery!
