Taylor Swift is a woman of her word.  Taylor kept a date with cancer survivor Kevin McGuire.  It happened Sunday before the ACM Awards in Vegas, that she had the long-delayed date with Kevin.  In case you don’t remember it was back in February of 2012 that Kevin, who was battling leukemia, asked Swift via F/B to be his date to the prom. Taylor couldn’t make it to the dance, so she asked Kevin if he’d be her date to the 2012 ACM Awards. Unfortunately, when the show rolled around on April 1, 2012, Kevin was unable to make the trip due to a chemo-induced fever. Taylor gave him a shoutout when she accepted her Entertainer of the Year award and followed that up with inviting Kevin — and his family — to the show the next year. Kevin told CBS in Philadelphia that: “I think Taylor is one of those people who you don’t really see that often. Classy, sweet and kind.”  “Going through what we’ve been through… it’s symbolic, in a way. It started my chapter with my cancer. Now it’s behind me; I can close the book on it.” And what a happy story he has to tell for many years to come.
