Taylor Swift Fulfills Date Promise to Cancer Survivor

by at . Comments

Taylor Swift has been spotted out with a new young man.

But it's not what you think.

Kevin McGuire and Taylor Swift

Yesterday, prior to the 2013 Academy of Country Music Awards, Swift fulfilled her promise to Kevin McGuire, a 19-year old cancer survivor who asked the artist to the prom last year.

Swift was unable to make it, however, and after going back and forth on dates that worked for both parties, they finally settled on Sunday.

Hence the photo above of Taylor and McGuire, whose leukemia is in remission and hence his remarks to a local station in Philadelphia a few weeks ago:

"I think Taylor is one of those people who you don't really see that often. Classy, sweet and kind. Going through what we've been through…it's symbolic, in a way. It started my chapter with my cancer. Now it's behind me; I can close the book on it."

The superstar has often made it her mission to meet with the less fortunate.

She paid a hospital visit to a girl with a cancer prior to kicking off her tour in Nebraska last month.

He didn't get to sit by her at all during the show, so it is hardly a "date",disappointing really as it makes it seem like another PR attempt to undo the damage to her reputation. He did get to go see her before the shoe, but was not her date AT the show. I am sure it was nice for hom though to get to meet her and go to the show but don't give her. Ore credit tha. She deserves.
