Taylor Swift touched the life of one of her biggest fans just weeks before she passed away.
12-year-old Emily Beazley, who battled non-Hodgkin's lymphoma for four years, died on Monday night, according to The Chicago Tribune. But three weeks prior to her passing, she received a phone call from her favorite superstar.

After getting Taylor's attention through the hashtag #EmilyStrong, the 25-year-old, who recently revealed her own mom's cancer diagnosis, not only gave the preteen a call, but offered her and her family tickets and backstage passes to her Detroit concert on May 30.
Sadly, Emily will never get the chance to meet her idol face-to-face.
When describing her talk with the "Shake It Off" singer, Emily couldn't hold back her excitement. "It feels really good right now. I'm really happy right now," she told The Chicago Tribune.
Before her passing, Emily also had the opportunity to throw out the first pitch at a Chicago White Sox game and on Tuesday, the team held a moment of silence in memory of her.

"My beautiful Emily got to use her angel wings," her mother, Nadia, wrote on Facebook after her death. "She fought hard to the end. Her last gift to me was passing peacefully."
She added, "It hurts so much to imagine that I will never have another hug or kiss from my girl. Or hear her say 'Mommy' the special way that she does. This hurts so damn bad."
