The 25-year-old pop phenom said that she had wanted to keep the details private, but that her mother, 57-year-old Andrea Finlay, insisted she go public with the news in the hope of preventing other families from receiving their diagnosis too late.
Finlay received her diagnosis only after Taylor begged her last Christmas to go have some routine screenings done. Although Finlay said she “felt fine” she, thankfully, went along just to ease her daughter’s mind.
“[My mom] wanted you to know because your parents may be too busy juggling everything they’ve got going on to go to the doctor, and maybe you reminding them to go get checked for cancer could possibly lead to an early diagnosis and an easier battle…" Swift wrote.
"Or peace of mind in knowing that they’re healthy and there’s nothing to worry about. She wanted you to know why she may not be at as many shows this tour. She’s got an important battle to fight."
Taylor will be on tour this year, making stops all across the country. Make sure to check out our friends at Hipmunk for discounts on hotels and flights for any city, with best buying practices and informational guides. You can also find available ticket information at TiqIQ.com.
About a year after being accused of selling furniture to ICE detention centers, e-commerce site Wayfair is in another controversy.
Wayfair, the e-commerce website beloved by millennials on a budget who don't want their apartments to look just like IKEA showrooms, is no stranger to controversy.
Last summer, employees of the company organized a protest after allegations surfaced that Wayfair had sold $200,000 worth of furniture to border detention facilities. Now, Wayfair is being suspected of trafficking missing children in their furniture.
A vibrant summer earworm.
