Taylor Swift revealed today that her mother, Andrea Swift, has been diagnosed with cancer.
-Swift, 25, said her mother felt perfectly fine, but, "The results came in, and I’m saddened to tell you that my mom has been diagnosed with cancer."
-The "Shake It Off" singer and her family will keep the details of the diagnosis private, but admitted her mother wanted all Swift's fans to know.
-"She 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," she added. "She wanted you to know why she may not be at as many shows this tour. She’s got an important battle to fight."
-"I hope and pray that you never get news like this," she wrote.
