Taylor Swift, 25, has proven time and time again that she appreciates her fans. On March 2 she reached out to four-year-old Jalene Salinas, who is battling an aggressive form of brain cancer. What she does is truly amazing!
Taylor Swift Grants A Sick Fan Their Final Wish
When it comes to giving back to fans, Taylor is known for doing remarkable things for them. Her latest act came about after she was alerted by the viral social media campaign called #ShakeItOffJalene, according to Eyewitness News.
Jalene was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer last year, has been undergoing chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery for the last ten months, according to the outlet. So the little girl started a bucket list and has been able to check just about everything off. The only piece missing was her dream to dance with Taylor to her hit song “Shake It Off.”
Once Jalene’s final wish started to trend on Twitter, the “Style” singer jumped at the chance to make this little girl’s dream come true. She picked up the phone and called Jalene on FaceTime. Sadly, the young girl wasn’t feeling very well, and could barely talk, but her face did light up once she saw Taylor on the screen.

Taylor told her, “I’m so sorry you’re having a bad night, I’m so happy to talk to you though and I’m so happy you like ‘Shake it Off.'” She went on to have a very touching twenty minute conversation with Jalene and her mother, Jennifer Arriagas.
In the video you also hear the “Blank Space” singer tell Jalene, “You look beautiful tonight, you really do. You’re just as pretty as your picture” — so amazing! At that point the little girl musters up the energy to tell her idol, “We have a baby named Josh.” How cute!
Taylor also expressed her sympathy to Jennifer,”I got back from London and I heard about her. It’s just unfathomable to have to watch your baby go through this.”
Such a touching story! Taylor truly was happy to do what she could for Jalene.
