After an online campaign launched in order for a cancer patient to meet her idol, Kayla Kincannon visited with Taylor Swift in Nashville, Tennessee on Saturday (January 19).

Arranged by her family and friends, the 17-year-old girl met the country crooner for a long lunch with her and her mom.

Battling brain cancer for more than a year, Kayla started her online campaign to meet the "Love Story" singer.
According to her father, Brad Kincannon, "This was no quick meet and greet photo opp. We sat and talked to Taylor and her mom for two hours, had lunch and Kayla received a gift basket, then she signed pictures."

Later, he gushed, "She is the sweetest, most down to earth person I have ever met! This was more than we ever expected! I’m so thankful to team Kayla, news, and everyone who made her dream come true! This was the best day ever for her and all of us!"

Thrilled with the opportunity, Kayla tweeted to her new friend, "Can not believe I just had lunch w @taylorswift13 today, I was enchanted to meet you!" Check out the photos of their visit below.
