This wasn’t just any date for Taylor Swift, in fact you could say her date for the Academy of Country Music Awards Kevin McGuire was downright special. You see Kevin Maguire is a high school senior who suffers from leukemia and he famously asked Taylor Swift to be his prom date in February. Taylor Swift declined the invitation for the prom date but asked him to be her date to the awards show instead.
His sister Victoria broke this devastating news:
"I am so sorry to announce this devastating news, but Kevin was admitted to the hospital last night, and is unable to attend the Academy of Country Music Awards with Taylor Swift," wrote Victoria, adding that the New Jersey teen was battling a 103-degree fever in addition to intense chemotherapy.
Now it looks like with their evening plans dashed, Swift hopes to make it up to her would-be awards show date.
"Just talked to Kevin McGuire," she tweeted Saturday. "He’s not well enough to join me at the ACMs. Please keep him in your thoughts. I’ll make it up to you, Kevin!"
I hope Kevin is able to make a speedy recovery and actually make it on a date with Taylor Swift. Best wishes Kevin get well soon…
