Not the news we’ve been waiting for.
Unfortunately, Taylor Swift revealed today on Tumblr that her mother, Andrea, is battling cancer.
“I’m writing to you with an update I wish I wasn’t giving you, but it’s important and I’m used to sharing important events in my life with you.”
“She 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 et 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. She wanted you to know why she may not be at as many shows this tour. She’s got an important battle to fight. I hope and pray that you never get news like this”
Taylor and the family have decided to keep details of her mother’s condition private.
Swift is planning for her 2015 1989 tour with the first stop being in Tokyo on May 5th.
