You may not have realized that Taylor Swift is constantly giving back and although the star doesn’t flaunt her generosity, she continues to pay it forward. Swift has recently been recognized for her outstanding donation to a cause which she holds very close to her heart.
The pop-idol’s godson, Leo was diagnosed with Transposition of the Great Arteries at just 20 weeks. Upon being diagnosed with this disheartening and scary condition, Leo underwent open heart surgery. Thanks to the incredible doctors, surgeons and the miracle of science, Leo just had his first birthday!
Meet Baby Leo, Taylor’s Godson
Swift Has Got The Hang Of This Baby Thing!
Taylor is so thankful for the bright light that is her godson, Leo and her best friend Jaime King, the boy’s mother that she decided to pay it forward and give back in honor of his life. The singer gave a generous donation to the Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles to support the continued research of Dr. Alistair Phillips’s team in hopes of making a difference not only for Leo but for other children who have the same or similar health issues.
It’s Great To See The Generosity Of A Well-Known Celebrity Making A Difference!
Dear all- at 20 weeks our son was diagnosed with Transposition of the Great Arteries AKA TGA. He had a major heart surgery, that was terrifying, and traumatic for us as parents, for our family. Only a few of our best friends knew. I felt that I had to protect him in fear of the unknown, fear he would not make it. We felt isolated & confused. @taylorswift does so many selfless acts that go unnoticed because she does them silently, from such a great place of unconditional giving. As the Godmother of Leo Thames for his birthday she gave an incredible donation to the people that saved his life Dr. Allistar Phillips and his brilliant team. It made us realize that silence cannot connect other parents & people going through these issues. TS knew that by giving back in this way would be the greatest gift one could give to us, to Leo Thames and to all of those with congenital heart issues. She came to the ICU to comfort us, to hold and bond with him with such grace & strength. Our gift back is to share our story that anyone that is going through this is not alone, we understand & want to stand up to bring awareness in the greatest way possible. Leo Thames is the strongest, healthiest boy because of this team. He will live a full and whole life & never have to look back. Thank you Taylor & to EVERYONE listed on this letter we love you. With gratitude and humbleness 💜 Jaime and Kyle
