Kevin McGuire has cancer. He is eighteen years old, very athletic, and keeping his chin up regardless -- and for this, everyone can be a bit inspired. So how does this adolescent factor into the music industry? Well, his sister thought he deserved to meet his idol, and so she spread the word that Kevin wanted to ask Taylor Swift to the prom. That's right, Taylor Swift.
...and she said no.
Swift didn't leave it at that, though; she added that she would like it if he came with her to something a little bigger, though: the Academy of Country Music Awards in April.
"Kevin is the kindest, most noble 18 year old a person could even fathom
meeting," his sister Tori wrote on the Facebook page she created for Kevin's wish, "and throughout his ups and downs
Kevin never even questioned 'why me?' Nothing, and I mean NOTHING
brightens Kevin's day more than Taylor Swift."
Pretty awesome, eh?
