Cancer survivors meet Taylor Swift backstage at Singapore concert

She had written an open letter on Facebook last Wednesday to ask Taylor Swift to visit cancer-stricken children at the National University Hospital (NUH).As a cancer survivor, Miss Dominique Schell, 19, hoped the US pop singer could cheer up the children and create awareness for those suffering from sarcoma, a rare childhood cancer.

Swift was unable to fit a visit to NUH into her tight schedule, but Miss Schell not only got to see the superstar perform up close but also got to meet her backstage.

Miss Schell, who went with another sarcoma survivor to the second of Swift’s sold-out 1989 World Tour concerts at the Singapore Indoor Stadium last night, said a publicist found them before the concert and took her and Michelle Liew, 15, to meet Swift and her mother.

“They hugged us. Taylor was first taken aback by what was on my leg, which is the reaction that pretty much everyone gives me,” said Miss Schell, who uses a walking stick and has metal rods holding her bones together on her leg, the result of her battle with cancer.“

She spoke to us a bit, more than five minutes. She was talking about how she had tendonitis, then she said, ‘Oh, I was making such a big deal but look at you guys’. We took a picture as well.”
