Home / Music News / Cancer Patient Still Hoping to Take Taylor Swift to his Prom


Kevin McGuire of Somderdale, New Jersey, the 18-year-old high school senior who is battling a rare form of cancer, hasn’t heard anything from Taylor Swift regarding his dream to take her to his senior prom, but the Facebook page his sister Victoria started is getting lots of attention.  More than 23,000 people have “liked” the Facebook page so far.

Kevin says Taylor would make the ideal prom date because she’s “someone who’s confident…someone who will make me have a good time and make me not feel like a sick kid.”

Victoria says Kevin’s “eyes lit up for the first time since he was diagnosed” after she proposed trying to get the singer to go to the prom with him.

Kevin says despite having cancer and a bald head, Taylor will still “be able to make me feel like I belong at my senior prom.” 

Kevin’s prom at Sterling High School is June 1, which is also his birthday. 

A rep for Taylor Swift has not responded to the prom request.
