Taylor Swift, arguably the best selling female artist of today, reveals that her mother Andrea Finlay has cancer. She calls upon her fans to pray for her mother in such a stressful time.
"For Christmas this year, I asked my mom that one of her gifts to me be her going to the doctor to get screened for any health issues, just to ease some worries of mine," wrote Swift. "She agreed, and went in to get checked ... The results came in, and I'm saddened to tell you that my mom has been diagnosed with cancer."
Swift wanted to keep her mother's health situation in wraps. However; her mother insisted that she tell her millions of fans in a bid to raise cancer awareness.
"I'd like to keep the details of her condition and treatment plans private, but she wanted you to know," Swift continued. "She wanted you to know because your parents may be too busy juggling everything they've got going on to go to the doctor, and maybe you reminding them to go get checked for cancer could possibly lead to an early diagnosis and an easier battle."
The country music singer went on to thank her fans and ended with "I hope and pray that you never get news like this.
