Sweetheart Taylor Swift recently did something we kinda wish all celebrities would choose to do a little more often: She spent some of her precious free time with an ailing fan.

Kayla Kincannon, a 17-year-old Michigan girl battling brain cancer, recently got to have lunch with her idol. Kayla’s family friends had launched a campaign on Twitter (#OperationGetKaylaToMeetTaylorSwift) a month ago. Taylor’s mom heard the cry and quickly set everything up.

“You guys have no idea how awesome this lunch was!” Kayla’s dad posted on their Team Kayla website. “This was no quick meet and greet photo opp. We sat and talked to Taylor and her mom for two hours, had lunch and Kayla received a gift basket, then she signed pictures! She is the sweetest, most down-to-earth person I have ever met! This was more than we ever expected! I’m so thankful to team Kayla, news, and everyone who made her dream come true! This was the best day ever for her and all of us!”

Kayla tweeted, “Can not believe I just had lunch w @taylorswift13 today, I was enchanted to meet you!”

    Love this! Great addition to the site!
    I participated in that trend! I’m so glad it worked out for her 🙂 She’s such a sweet girl on twitter. I think she’s a Christian too 🙂
