7-time Grammy award winning singer, Taylor swift, made a huge donation of $50,000 to the Cancer Center at CHOP(Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia) in 2013. The money was channelled towards creating specialized music programming for teens with cancer, and the hospital plans to develop programs to further support teens emotional well-being. Taylor’s gift will make such a positive impact on these teens who are going through difficult treatments.
“Taylor Swift’s music is an inspiration to so many of our teen patients. We can think of no better way to use her gift than to grow our Adolescent and Young Adult initiative designed to support the emotional well-being of our teens with cancer,” Lamia Barakat, PhD, psychologist and director of the Psychosocial Services Program at CHOP’s Cancer Center said.
