Taylor Swift Gets Asked To The Prom And Then One Ups The Offer

Taylor Swift got asked to the prom. Not only did she respond but she one upped the offer. Kevin McGuire of Stratford, New Jersey is currently battling cancer for unfortunately the second time in his life. He had a battle with leukemia when he was thirteen years old. After going through various treatments, he was able to win the battle against it. Kevin went on to play sports in high school including football and basketball at Sterling High School. Now at 18, he has had a relapse and battling it again. Kevin's sister, Victoria McGuire talked to him about working on getting his dream date for prom and that would be Taylor Swift. Kevin is obviously a big Taylor Swift fan. Victoria started a Facebook page called "Taylor Swift Take Kevin McGuire to Prom!" She posted on there saying "Kevin is the kindest, most noble 18 year old a person could even fathom meeting, and through out his ups and downs Kevin never questioned 'why me?' Nothing and I mean NOTHING brightens Kevin's day more than Taylor Swift." The response to the page has been awesome and gained a lot of attention in a small amount of time. That includes the person that it was meant for. Taylor Swift found out about this and posted this response on her own Facebook page "Kevin, I'm so sorry but I won't be able to make it to your prom. But I was wondering, the ACM Awards are coming up. Would you be my date? Love Taylor." Kevin has of course accepted and the Prom page has been updated with this comment: "Taylor got back to us!!!! She is unable to attend Kevin's prom, although did one better - Invited Kevin to be her date to the Academy of Country Music Awards!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you so so so so so much! The McGuire family could never show how grateful we are to all of you! We have won in more than one way..we got Taylor to take Kevin on a date, and we have made so many good friends along the way." This is just a great story to read.  I know I speak for everyone in thanking Taylor Swift for such a kind thing that she is doing for Kevin and his family.  Really looking forward to hearing about their date together at the ACM Awards.  Awesome Taylor.  Just awesome!
