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.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
