T aylor Swift’s mom asked Taylor to share the news with her fans, 56 million of them, that her mom, Andrea Finlay, who is 57, is fighting cancer. Taylor is keeping the details of her mom’s condition private. Why would her mom want Taylor to do this? Is her mom trying to get sympathy? No. Taylor says, “She wanted you to know because your parents may be too busy juggling everything they’ve got going on to go to the doctor, and maybe you reminding them to go get checked for cancer could possibly lead to an early diagnosis and an easier battle.” I hope she wins this battle.
