“Taylor Swift is an angel and my family and I can’t thank her enough."
This isn't the first time Taylor has stepped up to help out in a family's time of need. But this time around it seems to have really struck a chord with her, proving just what a caring and kind woman she is.
Step forward Toshi, one of Taylor Swift's backing dancers, who just a day ago announced the devastating news on Instagram that his 13-month-old nephew is battling cancer.
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
Just a few hours later when stepping off a plane, Toshi was pretty taken back to find a certain Taylor Swift had donated $50,000 on the family's GoFundMe Page.
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
After seeing the donation, Ayden's family have left a message of thanks for Taylor and Toshi on the page.
We wish Ayden and all of his family the very best in the coming weeks and months ahead.
