Local Teen That Battled Cancer Finally Gets His Date to the ACM’s With Taylor Swift
Last year, Kevin McGuire, who was suffering from cancer and in need of a bone marrow transplant, asked Taylor Swift to prom through an intense Facebook campaign. Despite everyone’s best efforts, it just wasn’t meant to be at that time.
According to Taste of Country,
“Here’s a refresher of the events: Swift had to decline the prom invite due to scheduling conflicts, but she did turn around and ask McGuire to be her date to the 2012 ACMs. He said yes, but had to bail last minute when he got really sick with a high fever, despite wearing a medical mask in the days before to prevent any illness ruining his chance to squire Swift to a major country awards show. It was a major bum out, and he had to watch from the couch, as he was deemed medically unable to travel.”
Well, yesterday his dreams came true! McGuire was the recipient of a bone marrow transplant from his little brother and is in much better health these days. He is also went to the ACM’s this year as Taylor Swift’s date!
Taylor Swift has a heart of gold, that much is true as can be.
