Taylor Swift Spends Day With Young Leukemia Patient: Watch the Heartwarming Video

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Last week, we shared a list of things you might not know about Taylor Swift, and while most of the entries concerned Taylor's career and tabloid-ready love life, the most important fact about Taylor has nothing to do with singing or celebrity boyfriends:

Taylor frequently takes time out of her insanely busy schedule to brighten the lives of kids with terminal illnesses.

In the past, Swift has visited cancer patients and posed for inspiring photos. Over the weekend, however, we received a special glimpse of just  how much Taylor brings to the lives of young fans from a video posted by the parents of Jordan Lee Nickerson:

Jordan is a 6-year-old boy who was diagnosed with a rare genetic condition known as Williams Syndrome just six months after he was born. He's since encountered numerous health problems and is currently being treated for Leukemia at a Boston hospital.

Needless to say, a visit from his favorite singer was a welcome ray of sunshine in Jordan's life, and Taylor certainly didn't disappoint.

As you can see in the video above, this was no typical celebrity meet and greet.

In addition to singing "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" with Jordan, Taylor reportedly hung out for hours, snacking on Jell-O and taking Jordan on in an intense game of air hockey.

The whole visit serves as further evidence that while other celebrities are busy partying and punching each other in Ibiza, Taylor is focused on using her fame to bring a little bit of happiness to the lives of her fans who need it the most.

She's basically the anti-Bieber:
