Kevin was diagnosed with leukemia when he was 13-years-old and has been in remission since 2010. He was worried that no one would want to go to his prom with him because he'll soon be losing his hair due to chemotherapy treatment, according to ABC News affiliate WPVI. Kevin expressed his concerns to his sister, Tori, who asked him, "What if I got Taylor Swift to go to prom with you?"

"His eyes lit up for the first time since he was diagnosed," she recalls.

So, Tori started a "Taylor Swif Take Kevin McGuire to Prom" Facebook page and with the help of some Tweeting and lots of fans support, Taylor got the invitation!

We can't wait to see Kevin and Taylor together at the ACMs!
