The results came in, and I’m saddened to tell you that my mom has been diagnosed with cancer. I’d like to keep the details of her condition and treatment plans private, but she wanted you to know.
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… Or peace of mind in knowing that they’re healthy and there’s nothing to worry about. She wanted you to know why she may not be at as many shows this tour. She’s got an important battle to fight.
Thank you for caring about my family so much that she would want me to share this information with you.
I hope and pray that you never get news like this.
While Taylor failed to give many details about the diagnosis, other stars have been quick to offer support, with Lady Gaga sending her well-wishes via Twitter. “God bless you and your mama and family, we’ll all be praying @taylorswift13.”
Just this week, Taylor was spotted in tears by the paparazzi, a testament to the emotional toll the diagnosis has had on Taylor. We wish the star’s mother a speedy recovery and well wishes.
