Taylor Swift ACM Date Too Sick To Attend

Sad to hear that Taylor Swift’s date to Sunday night’s ACM Awards show in Las Vegas is too sick to attend.  Taylor invited New Jersey teenager Kevin McGuire to be her date to the show when she had to turn down his invitation to be his date to his high school prom.

Kevin was diagnosed with leukemia when he was 13 back in 2007 and had been in remission until just recently.  Friday, just before he was to fly to Las Vegas, he was admitted to the hospital with a temperature of 103 degrees when chemotherapy compromised his immune system.

When he was concerned he wouldn’t be able to find a date to his prom because treatments would make him lose his hair, his older sister started the Taylor Swift Take Kevin McGuire To Prom Facebook page.  A scheduling conflict prevented Taylor from accepting so she came up with the ACM idea.

Taylor had made arrangements and paid for his tuxedo and shoes and travel and hotel accomodations for him and his family.  Taylor made the sad announcement on her Twitter page that he wouldn’t be able to come.
