Sweet as can be Taylor Swift declined a prom date request from Kevin McGuire, a cancer stricken New Jersey teen, but instead offered him an invite to be her date to the Academy of Country Music Awards in April…how cool is she?
Kevin’s sister, Victoria started an online petition to get her brother, Kevin a special date to his prom…Taylor Swift! The petition got Taylor’s attention. Taylor had to decline but…Taylor took toÂ Facebook to send out her own invitation…
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?
And it looks like Kevin accepted…
Taylor got back to us!!!! She is unable to attend Kevin’s prom, although did one better- Invited Kevin to be her date to the Academy of Country Music Awards!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you so so so so so much! The McGuire family could never show how grateful we are to all of you! We have won in more than one way.. we got Taylor to take Kevin on a date, and we have made so many good friends along the way!
