Taylor Swift made an eight-year-old fans day by popping in to visit her in hospital.

Taylor is currently beavering away at her tour rehearsals as she kicks off her Reputation run on 8 May, but she took time out to visit Isabella, who is recovering from horrific burns she suffered in March.

Isabella McCune will miss Taylors upcoming concert because she is being treated at the Arizona Burn Center at Maricopa Medical Center in Phoenix after being severely burned in a fire pit explosion.

So Taylor went to her.

Isabellas mother, Lilly McCune, told People magazine: Taylor took time out of her busy, busy schedule and sat down on the bed next to Isabella.

She brought her a bag with goodies from her tour. She said she had to meet her because she was so inspired by her story and honored that her music helped her.


Lilly revealed Taylor had been too afraid to hug Isabella in case she hurt her.

When she was leaving, my daughter asked for a hug and Taylor turned around and said, Absolutely — I didnt want to hurt you. They hugged and it was so heartfelt. I knew it meant a lot to Isabella.

Isabella was gobsmacked when Taylor appeared in front of her.

She was so shocked! She was speechless. She was so happy, her mum Lilly said. We were hoping for it but we didnt want to get her hopes up. When we found out, we felt it was best to keep it a secret.

The 28-year-old took her own parents on the trip too.

Her parents came too and they were the sweetest people, and it meant so much to my husband and me as parents, Lilly revealed. We have so much respect for them and how they raised her.

Isabella suffered burns on 50 per cent of her body, and has so far undergone 11 operations, including skin grafts, to treat her horrific injuries.

And throughout her ordeal, the youngster has been cheered by listening to her favourite songs by the Shake It Off hitmaker.

Lilly explained: Isabella has to go through painful, horrific dressing changes.

During the changes, the staff has been asking how they can help her deal with her pain, something that would distract her. She said if she were to listen to Taylor Swift music, it would be a good distraction. So they turn on the music for her.
