Devin Whitney, who suffers from a rare disease known as Oto-Palatal-Digital Syndrome, is hoping to land the prom date of his dreams. Originally planning to skip the event altogether, fearing ridicule from his classmates, Devin says his mind was changed when he recently saw Swift in concert. He’s managed to gain the attention of Denver’s local NBC affiliate, his classmates, family, and over 7,000 YouTube viewers. Considering the country star has pulled through for fans in similar situations, this certainly seems like a worthwhile cause. So let’s give him a hand, shall we? source

You know what? Screw cancer so hard. This guy, Kevin McGuire, had a date to the CMAs with Taylor Swift — but a flaring-up of his second bout with cancer kept him home. “I was perfectly fine the last two months. I didn’t (get) sick or even sneeze,” he noted. “Before my flight I got sick. Someone out there, somehow, didn’t want me going.” (Swift, who won CMA’s Entertainer of the Year, mentioned McGuire during her speech and talked with him on the phone beforehand.) Dear Taylor: Reschedule this date. You won’t regret it.
