One young Taylor Swift fan got her wish when she met the singer at her Sydney, Australia on Saturday (November 28)…before sadly losing her hearing permanently.
Jorja Hope and her sister set up a social media campaign to make her wish come true after being diagnosed with a condition.
“Things like this happen to other people, not to people like us,” mom Melissa told Australia’s Today show. “It’s been a fairy tale.” The first thing Jorja said when she was diagnosed was, “I won’t be able to hear Taylor Swift sing.”
“Jorja has battled her whole life from being born preemie with growth problems, to surgeries on her ears already and five surgeries for broken bones,” Jorja‘s mom added. “She is a fighter, no matter what happens, she smiles and keeps going.”
Jorja‘s twin-sister set up a Facebook campaign and helped make her sister’s dream come true.
