Taylor Swift is known for a lot of different things– most notably her desire to help out fans in need. This time though, her helping hand was needed a little bit closer to home.
One of Taylor‘s backup dancers, Toshi, announced via Instagram that his 13-month-old nephew had been diagnosed with cancer. Kindly asking for prayer and donations, Toshi shared Ayden’s (“Lil Toshi”‘s) GoFundMe Page in his bio.
My youngest Nephew Ayden “Lil Toshi” only 13 months old has been diagnosed with Cancer… Keep him in your prayers please… They are still running test to find out the stage and how far it has spread…GoFundMe link in Bio…if you want to donate … all I ask is for you to pray for him…Value the life you have and live it… Spread Love #helpbabyAydenbeatcancer #lilToshi #fuckcancer #family #love #nephew #life #live #cancer
A few hours after posting the photo, Toshi found an unexpected gift of $50,000 from none other than Taylor Swift herself.
We think she might be an angel or something.
So I get off the plane in Toronto and this is the 1st thing I see… @taylorswift is an angel and My family and I can’t thank her enough… She is such an incredible human being… This will help Lil Toshi in this time of need… Let’s pray for him to beat this… This unexpected gift is truly a blessing… ???????????????????????????????? #helpbabyAydenbeatcancer #fuckcancer #cancer #gofundme #taylorswift #greatestbossintheworld #amazinghuman #blessing #angel #nephew #lilToshi #live #life #love
Ayden’s mother later posted this sweet note on the page thanking Taylor for her support.
“Taylor you have taken an enormous weight off my shoulders by allowing me to walk this journey with my son and be his protector. I know this is a battle you are familiar with but something no one can be prepared for. So thank you so much from the bottom of my heart. I will be forever grateful to Taylor and each and every person who made a contribution to Ayden’s fight.”
You’re in our thoughts baby Ayden.
