Taylor Swift made a special visit to New York Hospital Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center to spend some time with the patients while she was in New York bringing huge smiles with her visit. Swift’s visit was very special to Shelby Huff according to ABC News.
Huff’s mother said "We are still in awe, Taylor Swift is a class act all around, she was so sweet, compassionate, asked US questions, got on skype with my other daughter, stayed in our room and talked with us and was completely down to earth." The family shared their daughters surprise visit with Swift by posting a video of the special moment.
The post included “Shelby Huff got a special visitor at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City ... Taylor Swift!
