Taylor Swift is at it again…doing good while on tour. The country chick took some time out of her busy tour schedule recently to meet with a young fan who was severely injured outside one of her concerts last month.
According to a report, “Seven-year-old Grace Markel and her father were exiting a taxi outside Taylor’s tour venue in Chicago on Aug. 10 when the young girl was struck by a passing SUV. The vehicle’s driver was uninsured and had a suspended license. So instead of catching her idol in concert, Grace spent two days in a nearby hospital with injuries including two skull fractures, a left orbital fracture, head lacerations and a serious concussion. Road rash covered her face and body.
It has been a difficult recovery, but Grace stayed positive throughout, her parents said. They decided to celebrate their daughter’s amazing progress with a special treat: Last Saturday (Sept. 21), they took her to Taylor’s Nashville concert, where she got to meet her idol too!”
Taylor reached out to the family and invited them backstage before the show. Grace’s mom Amy told people, “Taylor greeted Grace by her name and immediately knelt down and hugged her. She told Grace she had a cold and asked Grace to sing extra loud to help her out. [The meeting] was just a warm and genuine exchange that made it feel like time has stopped, and it was just the two of them.”
Not only did Grace get hugs and pics with Taylor she was given the all clear from her doctor!
