Taylor Swift Gifts Children's Hospital of Philadelphia with $50,000

Taylor Swift‘s heart just knows no bounds.

The 24-year-old musician has gifted The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia with a $50,000 gift, which will be used to create specialized programming for teens with cancer treated at CHOP’s Cancer Center. The monies donated will go towards establishing a high-tech music therapy cart for teens to create and produce their own music while they go through cancer treatment.

“We are thrilled that Taylor Swift has chosen to support The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia’s Cancer Center,” Steven M. Altschuler, MD, chief executive officer of The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia shared. “Her gift will help lift the spirits of many CHOP patients during a difficult time.”

Lamia Barakat, Ph.D., psychologist and director of the Psychosocial Services Program at CHOP’s Cancer Center added, “Taylor Swift‘s music is an inspiration to so many of our teen patients. We can think of no better way to use her gift than to grow our Adolescent and Young Adult initiative designed to support the emotional well-being of our teens with cancer.”

One way to get one’s mind off of one’s own troubles is to take notice and interest in those in far worse straights than oneself.

Good altruism, TS.
