The superstar donates 50k to a fan with cancer.

An insanely talented songwriter. A fantastic singer. A world-class musician. A wonderful performer. Stunningly beautiful and modelesque. It seems that Taylor Swift can add something else to her list of talents: being an incredibly good person.

The 25 year old Queen of Pop has donated everything from money to library books in the past, always taking care of her fans who have supported her. This time is no different. When a story broke about 11 year old Naomi Oakes, who was diagnosed with acute myelogenous leukemia, a particularly tough form of cancer. The diagnosis meant that Naomi would be hospitalized for 6-9 months, forcing her to miss Swift's concert in Phoenix, Arizona, on August 18, 2015, according to People.

Oakes and her family used Swift's song "Bad Blood" as her theme song to fight the blood cancer, using it as a source of inspiration for #TeamNaomi. In a video produced by the family to help raise money for her medical treatment (which will be well over $30,000 when all is said and done), they use the song as a background:

The internet, particularly Tumblr caught wind of the little girl and her GoFundMe page, and Taylor quickly found out about it as well. 

Not only did Taylor donate $50,000 dollars to the page (the initial goal was only $30,000), but she also left the girl a very sweet message:

"To the beautiful and brave Naomi," she wrote. "I'm sorry you have to miss it, but there will always be more concerts. Let's focus on getting you feeling better. I'm sending the biggest hugs to you and your family."

Naomi's emotional -- and surprise -- reaction was also caught on video.

"I can barely breathe," said Naomi. "I seriously think I'm going to pass out right now." See her whole reaction:
