Emily Beazley, a 12-year-old Taylor Swift fan died on Tuesday. May 19, as confirmed by her family. Emily was proud to call herself one of the biggest Swifties. She lost her long battle with non-Hogkins lymphoma after fighting it for four years.
Emily’s mother said:
“My beautiful Emily got to use her angel wings. She fought hard to the end. Her last gift to me was passing peacefully.”
Emily was diagnosed when she was 8-years-old and went into remission briefly until her cancer returned. After doctors told them that they would be fighting a losing battle the family opted out of chemotherapy.
Emily dreamed of one day growing up to be a pediatric oncology nurse. A while back she told Chicago reporters:
“You’ve got to stay strong and you’ve got to stay positive, no matter what happens.”
