Taylor Swift's mum has been diagnosed with cancer

This is something my family and I thought you should know about.

Taylor Swift has given us a lot over the years, and now it’s time to send her all of the positive vibes and well wishes that we can.

Taylor has just shared some sad news on her Tumblr page to let her fans know that her mum, Andrea Finlay, has been diagnosed with cancer.

“For Christmas this year, I asked my mom that one of her gifts to me be her going to the doctor to get screened for any health issues, just to ease some worries of mine,” Taylor wrote. “The results came in, and I’m saddened to tell you that my mom has been diagnosed with cancer. I’d like to keep the details of her condition and treatment plans private, but she wanted you to know.”

Taylor doesn’t specify any other details but says she has shared the news to urge other families to look after one another. “Your parents may be too busy juggling everything they’ve got going on to go to the doctor, and maybe you reminding them to go get checked for cancer could possibly lead to an early diagnosis and an easier battle,” Taylor wrote.

Our thoughts are with both you and your mum this morning, Taylor.
