Taylor Swift Donates $50,000 To Help Kids Suffering From Cancer

The 24 year old singer and 7-time Grammy winner Taylor Swift has set a huge example for us all. Back in 2013 she made a huge donation of $50,000 to the Cancer Center at CHOP in 2013. All this money was used up to create a specialized music programming for teens with cancer. The hospital is also going to focus on some programs which are going to help improve the emotional well being off the teens. These teens are definitely going through a very tough time in their lives and thanks to Taylor Swift’s huge contribution, they will experience a very positive impact.

Taylor Swift’s charitable personality came to our notice when the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia revealed the details behind her huge donation. Lamia Barakat, PhD, psychologist and director of the Psychosocial Services Program at CHOP’s Cancer Center said “Taylor Swift’s music is an inspiration to so many of our teen patients. We can think of no better way to use her gift than to grow our Adolescent and Young Adult initiative designed to support the emotional well-being of our teens with cancer.”

The first of the programs is going to focus on a high tech and advanced music therapy system for the teens which is going to let them create their own music while they go through their difficult cancer treatments. “Teenagers who are being treated for cancer have emotional and social needs that are different than their younger counterparts. They’re facing a frightening diagnosis and treatment during what is already a time of great physical, social, and emotional change,” said Stephanie Rogerwick, child life manager at CHOP’s Cancer Center.

Your Favorite Female Pop Stars’ Worst Big Screen Debuts

When it comes to music, these girls have it all. They can sing. They can dance. And they can act — err, wait a minute on the last one. Sadly, a powerful voice, a magnetic personality in interviews, or killer dance moves in music videos doesn’t mean a pop star has what it takes to be an actress. With practice, some do get better. But if their big screen debuts are any precursor, some of them better stick to their main gig and leave the acting to the prof ...
