Taylor Swifts Message Is Heartfelt
August 17th, 2015 Glendale, Arizona – Taylor Swift opens up to her fans about Her song “Ronan,” and how it really touches close to home. Swift’s song, Ronan is inspired by a blog about a 4-year-old boy who died of cancer back in 2011. Ronan’s mother, Maya Thompson was the one who documented Ronan’s battle. Swift tearfully speaks of her own mother’s recent cancer battle.
“I wouldn’t know half as much as I know about childhood cancer and childhood cancer research if she hadn’t shared her story about her son Ronan,” Swift told the crowd. “The thing about childhood cancer is that it’s really, really hard to talk about. And it’s really not something that you bring up…but the fact that she brought it up, she had this blog called Rockstar Ronan and I would read it every night. And in it was this account of what it was like to watch cancer take over my life.”
The very touching concert did end with a happy note. Thompson and her family takes a group photo with Swift and writes:
“I love you @taylorswift,” she wrote. “You have my heart for the rest of my life and beyond.” In another video of Swift’s monologue, Thompson wrote: “I still can’t believe you did this. This will forever be one of the most special moments of my life. Thank you @taylorswift for your beautiful heart and for never forgetting my Ro. I love you to the moon and back.”
