Teen Fighting Illness Meets Taylor Swift
ST. LOUIS, MO. (KTVI) – On Monday a 15-year-old girl fighting cystic fibrosis realized a dream at a Taylor Swift concert.
Cheyenna Ames got to meet Swift before the concert at the Scottrade Center.
It is something Ames has dreamed of for years. “I was too sick to go the last time she was performing here,” Ames said. “This time I don’t feel great, but I will be where I need to be for the concert.”
Ames already had tickets to the concert, but Monday night representatives from the Bull 93.7 gave her meet and greet tickets.
“Now I will get to actually meet her,” she said. “I am going to get as much excitement out of this as I can.”
Ames spends most of her days at Cardinal Glennon, so she said it is great to get out of the hospital.
“I have my dress, jewelry and my boots,” she said. “This is the Cheyenna I want to see.”
Swift’s managers would not allow Fox 2 to film the meeting, but Ames said it was “great.”
“She was super nice,” she said. “My favorite singer.”
Ames attended the concert with one of her nurses.
Representatives from the Bull 93.7 said that Ames inspired them and that it was a “great” use of the tickets.
Ames was very happy.
“Thank you so much,” she said. “These are my tickets.”
