With the help of social media, 7-year-old Jordan Overcast, met her biggest idol, Taylor Swift. Jordan was diagnosed with a brain tumor before her 2-year-old birthday and has led an arduous fight against the disease.
The campaign, led by the hashtag #TaylormeetJordan got traction after a Fox 4 story documented Jordan’s journey in July. Her battle included daily chemotherapy treatments, surgeries and radiation treatments.
Upon finishing a radiation treatment in August, she received tickets from a friend to see her favorite singer, Taylor Swift, in concert.
The campaign went viral, thousands of Twitter users re-posting and showing their support for Jordan and her mission to meet Taylor Swift.
The campaign reached the “Shake It Off” singer and Taylor and Jordan met before her Kansas City, Mo. concert and posted sweet photos of their special meet-and-greet.
