Taylor Swift has made a generous pledge to a young fan fighting cancer.
Naomi Oakes, an 11-year-old Taylor Swift admirer, is bravely fighting acute myelogenous leukemia (cancer of the myeloid line of blood cells) and has chosen her idol's hit tune Bad Blood as her theme song.

Over the weekend Naomi's family posted a video of the youngster's story on YouTube. As she'll be hospitalised for the next six to nine months, Naomi will be missing Taylor's concert in Phoenix in August. The video also asked for people to help get a message to the megastar with the hashtag #TeamNaomi.
The message was received loud and clear by Taylor, and she generously donated ₵192,500.00 ( $50,000 [USD]) to Naomi's Go Fund Me page, which was set up by her uncle to help supplement her expensive medical care.
Taylor also left a message next to the donation.
"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," she wrote.
In response to the gesture, another video was uploaded of Naomi.
"I can barely breathe. I seriously think I'm going to pass out right now," Naomi exclaimed.
