Taylor Swift’s Mother Andrea Diagnosed with Cancer
Taylor Swift has just revealed that her mother, Andrea, has cancer.
According to the 25-year-old entertainer, the diagnosis comes just months after she asked her mother to get a health checkup during the holidays.
Here’s Swift’s full Tumblr post, which went up Thursday morning (Apr. 9, 2015):
The Swift family spent last weekend celebrating Easter together at their home, where Taylor and her brother Austin took part in a friendly egg hunt. Her mother also gifted the “Shake It Off” singer with an Easter basket:
Mama Andrea, 57, is no stranger to longtime Swifties. As Taylor pointed out, her mother is a constant presence on the road. In 2009, the then 19-year-old singer released the sweet music video for “The Best Day,” a track off Fearless that was dedicated to Andrea.
Swift’s 1989 World Tour is due to kick off on May 5 in Tokyo, Japan. The U.S. leg begins on May 20 in Louisiana.
Our thoughts are with Taylor and the Swift family at this time.
