Taylor Swift Fans Create Charity T-Shirt for Mom’s Cancer Battle
Immediately after Taylor Swift revealed that her mom has been diagnosed with cancer, Swifties banded together to trend #PrayForMamaSwift on Twitter. But that's not all: They've also created charitable T-shirts in Andrea Swift's honor.
The $15 tees, which you can purchase on TeeSpring.com, are all black and feature a drawing of hands in the shape of a heart (a gesture Taylor often does at her concerts) on the front. The back reads "SwiftStrong" and features a purple ribbon. See a photo of the shirt below. All proceeds go to StandUp2Cancer.org in Andrea's honor, a charity that Taylor herself has supported in the past.
"The purpose of the campaign is to raise cancer awareness and encourage your loved ones to go to your doctor and get a health scan even if you feel fine," the description reads, a sentiment that Taylor Swift shared in an emotional letter to fans.
"[My mom] wanted you to know because your parents may be too busy juggling everything they’ve got going on to go to the doctor, and maybe you reminding them to go get checked for cancer could possibly lead to an early diagnosis and an easier battle… Or peace of mind in knowing that they’re healthy and there’s nothing to worry about," Taylor wrote in the note.
We continue to keep Andrea Swift and the entire Swift family in our thoughts during this difficult time and wish Taylor's mom all the best in her recovery.
