Taylor Swift Helps Dream Come True For 12-Year-Old Girl With Cystic Fibrosis
Taylor Swift has made the dream of yet another fan come true.
Continuing her quest toward eventual sainthood — sorry, Saint West — the “Blank Space” singer met up with a 12-year-old fan named Ella Sinclair, who suffers from cystic fibrosis.

After a huge social campaign with the hashtag #EllaMeetsTaylor, the country-turned-pop sensation decided to meet with the girl who has been singing T-Swift’s songs since the age of six as part of her vocal exercises to repair her damaged lungs.
For those not familiar with CF, it’s a "life-threatening, genetic disease that causes persistent lung infections and progressively limits the ability to breathe" after mucus builds up in the lungs (or other various organs), according to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
Taylor arranged for Ella to fly out to Adelaide in Australia ahead of the singer’s concert that evening and was able to meet with the sweet fan and take photos with her.

“I was just so wonder-struck because she’s my idol — it was amazing,” Ella tells Daily Mail Australia. “She was so awesome and kind when I met her and seemed like such a lovely person. She thanked me for coming to see her and told me I was an inspiration.”
“I told her, ‘You are an inspiration to me,’” continues Ella, who was diagnosed with CF at birth. “For the rest of my life I’ll be happy. This was my absolute dream come true.”
