Taylor Swift Meets Young Fan Who’s Going Deaf
Taylor Swift met a 12-year-old girl named Jorja who is slowly losing her ability to hear and will eventually go completely deaf. But before that happens, the young girl lived out her dream of hearing Swift live in concert and meeting the superstar at the show.
After being diagnosed with bilateral inner-ear loss, it was Jorja’s wish to go to one of Swift’s live shows before permanently losing her hearing. Earlier this month, Jorja’s twin sister Chloe launched a Facebook campaign urging fans to help spread the message. As a result of the campaign going viral, a meet and greet was set up at Swift’s 1989 concert in Sydney, Australia on Saturday night.
After the show, the Facebook campaign page posted the message, “It happened tonight, Jorja met Taylor! Chloe you did it. You gave your sister the ultimate gift! Taylor gave Jorja a massive hug!”
As Gossip Cop has reported, Swift makes it a habit of meeting with ailing fans. The singer has invited many cancer-stricken fans to meet her backstage at concerts, and has even shared meals with many of them. Additionally, she has visited numerous hospitals over the years to greet sick children and even treat them to private performances.
