Headcanon that over the Campwolfe family Christmas when everyone was slightly tipsy (and getting on with one another) they somehow got to talking about celebs or whatever and that is how Serena Wendy Campbell realised that she’s actually pretty Gay™ for Kate Moss. (Bernie feels smug that she’s beat Kate Moss to Serena Campbell. And buys Serena the Kate Moss/Hot Women 2017 calendar in the January sales)
Delaney Clements had tickets to attend a Taylor Swift concert this summer, but the teenager’s protracted battle with cancer kept her from attending.
Today, 13-year-old Delaney received something even better than concert tickets: a personal visit from the pop star to her Grand Junction home.
A social media campaign to get Swift to meet Delaney paid off this afternoon when Swift showed up at Delaney’s home.
Just before 4 p.m., Delaney’s mother, Wendy Campbell, posted this on Facebook: “So this just happened. Thank you Taylor Swift for the best Christmas present ever. #TaylorMeetDelaney.” She followed that post with a series of photos of Swift posing for photos with Delaney and her friends and siblings. By 5 p.m., the post had been “liked” by more than 11,000 people and shared by nearly 10,000.
Delaney, who was diagnosed with stage 4 neuroblastoma at age 8, has had a recurrence of the cancer four times. She returned to her Grand Junction home this week to enter hospice care after learning the cancer has spread to her brain.
GRAND JUNCTION - Delaney Clements was 8-years-old when she was diagnosed with neuroblastoma, a cancer commonly found in the adrenal glands.
Earlier this month, her mother posted on Facebook that cancer had spread to Delaney’s brain and she was expected to enter hospice care. Wendy Campbell said their goal was to keep her comfortable and her spirits lifted. One way they hoped to that was a visit from Taylor Swift.
Friends and family hoped to arrange a meeting using #delaneymeettaylor on social media to catch Swift’s attention. It apparently worked. On Saturday, Campbell posted pictures of Swift with Delaney on Facebook.
We first told you about Delaney in 2014, when a friend of hers made headlines for shaving her head in support of Delaney during her cancer treatments. Kamryn Renfro’s charter school, Caprock Academy in Grand Junction wouldn’t let her attend school with a shaved head. The school board later voted to let her attend school.
