Taylor Swift continues her acts of kindness toward her fans. 16-year-old Trinity Foster was diagnosed with stage four osteosarcoma, which has spread to her lung. 

Her GoFundMe page asks for help paying her medical bills, with a $10,000 goal. Swift donated $10,000 and left a sweet note for her fan. "I saw photos of your album release party that you did in your hospital room and wanted to say thank you for being so kind and supportive!" she wrote. "I hope I can give you a hug in person soon, but in the meantime I wanted to send you this and all my love. Your friend, Taylor."   

   

Foster's struggles hit home for Swift, whose Lover track "Soon You'll Get Better" details her mother's struggle with cancer. “That was really, really hard to write, and it was just a family decision whether to even put it on the album,” Swift said of the track during a YouTube Live. “We as a family decided to put this on the album, and it’s something I’m so proud of, but it’s just really hard. I can’t sing it. It’s hard to just emotionally deal with that song. You’ll understand what I mean in a couple hours.”
