Greensboro Girl Who Battled Cancer, Got To Meet Taylor Swift Dies:

Olivia Dunn dies after year and half battle with bone cancer.

Almost 10 months after getting her wish to meet Taylor Swift, 11-year-old Olivia Dunn has died. Olivia’s family posted the sad news Sunday on a prayer Facebook page for Olivia.

Tara Dunn, Olivia’s mom, confirmed she died just after 6pm Sunday night. Dunn tells WFMY News 2

“Sadly our baby girl got her wings last night”

WFMY News 2 first brought you Olivia’s story in October 2015. The Greensboro girl was battling bone cancer. One of her last wishes was to meet Swift during her Greensboro tour stop in October 2015. The wish was granted and 10-year-old Olivia’s night was made, her mom told WFMY News 2 after the concert.

Olivia told WFMY News 2 just like her favorite Swift song “Wildest Dream” her wish came true. She was able to meet Swift before the concert.

Olivia was diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma Stage 4 bone cancer in Spring 2015.

The family documented Olivia’s last days and her fight until the end on a Facebook page, Prayers for Olivia Dunn.

Tara Dunn said Olivia’s favorite Bible scripture was:

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”–Philippians 4:13
