Taylor Swift has donated 50 thousand dollars to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. The money will be used to create programming for cancer-stricken teens receiving treatment at the hospital’s cancer center — including a “high-tech music therapy cart” that will allow them to create and produce music.
Lamia Barakat, the director of the Psychosocial Services Program at CHOP’s Cancer Center, says in a statement, “Taylor Swift’s music is an inspiration to so many of our teen patients.”
Barakat adds, “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.”
