As a result of the viral hit video of a police officer dancing to Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off”, the police department in Dover, Delaware learned about 13-year-old, Victoria March, who was born with down syndrome and in December 2014, was additionally diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer, after feeling pain in her ankle.
They wanted to send Marsh to a Taylor Swift concert, but because of her chemotherapy treatments, doctors couldn’t allow Marsh to attend the concert in Philadelphia on June 13.
Marsh had to give up the concert tickets that the Dover Police Department had sent her, choosing to send her supportive sisters in her place.
So, the police decided to make a video that told Marsh’s story in hopes that Taylor Swift will see it and Facetime or meet Victoria when she stops in Philadelphia on her tour.
Using the hashtags #TeamVictoria and #SwiftAWish, the video plea went viral and their plan worked.
Taylor Swift saw it and couldn’t resist.
She invited Marsh backstage at the singer’s Philadelphia concert Saturday.
On the night of Swift’s concert in Philadelphia, Marsh was cleared by her doctors to leave her hospital room for eight hours, which meant she not only got to see the show – she got the chance to meet the singer backstage as well.
Pictures posted by the Dover Police Department on Facebook show Swift, Marsh and her sisters meeting Swift.
Swift has made news for good deeds many times in the past. Just this past week, the mega pop star donated $15,000 toward medical bills for a firefighter who saved his own family from a car wreck.
