泰勒·史薇芙特 (Taylor Swift) 与妈妈
泰勒·史薇芙特 (Taylor Swift) 说，她本不想公开这个消息和妈妈的治疗情况，但她的妈妈却希望她这么做。“妈妈说，很多人的父母可能都不会有常去医院的自觉，但你们可以给他们提个醒，疾病发现得越早，就越容易治疗。还有就是，妈妈说她在我今年的巡演中到场次数也许不会像往年一样多了，她希望你们知道原因。”
I'm writing to you with an update I wish I wasn't giving you, but it's important and I'm used to sharing important events in my life with you. Usually when things happen to me, I process them and then write music about how I feel, and you hear it much later. This is something my family and I thought you should know about now.
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. She agreed, and went in to get checked. There were no red flags and she felt perfectly fine, but she did it just to get me and my brother off her case about it.
She wanted you to know because 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… Or peace of mind in knowing that they're healthy and there's nothing to worry about. She wanted you to know why she may not be at as many shows this tour. She's got an important battle to fight.
Thank you for caring about my family so much that she would want me to share this information with you.
I hope and pray that you never get news like this.
