Superstar Taylor Swift will debut her new song tonight which pays tribute to a three year old child who died last year of neuroblastoma – a cancerous tumor only found in infants and children. The song is dedicated to
Ronan Thompson of Phoenix, which Taylor wrote after reading Ronan’s mother’s blog.
This is an incredible story of fate and Taylor Swift will debut the song tonight during the “Stand up to Cancer” telethon!
Precious little Ronan lost his battle at only 3 1/2 years old to cancer. He is the force that is helping to turn his mother Maya’s grief into a magnetic energy.- energy that helped her start the Ronan Thompson Foundation and the Rock Star Ronan blog. The Ronan Thompson Foundation is a non-profit dedicated to finding a cure for neuroblastoma through funding research performed by the country’s top oncologists in the active effort to reduce the number of children affected by this disease.
Through the foundation and blog, Ronan’s family has been fighting to raise awareness and find a cure for neuroblastoma. Now Taylor Swift will keep Ronan’s memory and words alive to millions more!
When Taylor Swift was in Phoenix to perform last year for her “Speak Now” tour, she invited Maya Thompson backstage. It was an emotional meeting.
Tonight, after Taylor’s debut performance of the song for Ronan, it will be available on iTunes and the proceeds will benefit cancer related charities. You can find out more about Ronan at the theronanthompsonfoundation.com
