Taylor Swift did yet another amazing deed by donating 50,000 US dollars to an 11-year-old girl fan who’s battling cancer.

Swiftie Naomi Oakes was planning to attend the 25-year-old singer’s Aug. 18 concert with her best friend in Phoenix, but unfortunately had to cancel her plans after she was diagnosed with Acute Myelogenous Leukemia on June 25, E ! Online reported.

The young brunette was required to undergo aggressive treatment which forbade her from leaving the hospital for six to nine months, and chose Taylor Swift’s ‘Bad Blood’ as her fight song to face the cancer.

And after the girl’s family shared her inspiring video on YouTube, Taylor Swift soon got a whiff of it, generously donated 50,000 dollars to Naomi’s GoFundMe page along with an adorable message which read: “To the beautiful and brave Naomi, I’m sorry you have to miss it, but there will always be more concerts. Let’s focus on getting you feeling better. I’m sending the biggest hugs to you and your family.”

The good hearted singer’s response brought a huge grin to Naomi’s face, and her family recorded her as she stared at a phone in pure amazement and said “I can barely breath, I seriously think I’m going to pass out,” making everyone in the room laugh.
