In 2007, at the age of 13, Kevin McGure was diagnosed with leukemia. The good news is that the cancer was in remission for years, the bad news is, the cancer returned recently. Kevin knew that with treatment he would lose all of his hair! He is now 18-years-old, and with his senior prom coming up, he wanted to get a date for this once in a lifetime special occasion! Kevin was a little more than worried about asking any of the girls to go with him. Then Kevin’s brilliant older sister, Victoria asked him, “If I got you a date with TAYLOR SWIFT, would you go.” Would he???
Victoria started a Facebook page on Tuesday that went viral overnight, garnering more than 93,000 likes and the attention of one of the most beautiful, and popular song stylists in the world; Taylor Swift herself. Taylor responded immediately to Kevin by saying, “Kevin, I’m so sorry but I won’t be able to make it to your prom. But I was wondering, the ACM Awards are coming up. Would you be my date?”
Unfortunately, Kevin is very ill with a high fever so he won’t be able to participate in a YouTube video Victoria and his younger brother planned on making in response to Swift.
Kevin is a high school student in New Jersey and will be in and out of the hospital for the remainder of his senior year and he turns 19 on Prom Night! Taylor Swift won’t be his prom queen, but, if he accepts, he’ll be going as her date to the Academy of Country Music Awards come April 1.
And that would make any fellow King of the World, to walk the red carpet with one of the most beautiful girls in the USA…..iconic TAYLOR SWIFT!
