Taylor learned of Delaney’s desire to meet her with a hashtag that’s trending on social media — #DelaneyMeetTaylor.

Clements underwent a five day treatment of radiation in Denver earlier this month before heading back to her hometown of Grand Junction to begin hospice care.

Despite the grim outlook, Delaney has had a very positive attitude.

“I believe I got cancer because I’ve heard the saying that God gives his hardest battles to his strongest soldiers, and I honestly believe that I am one of his strongest soldiers, so he chose me,” she said in a video posted online.

Clements and some friends also put together a video to Swift’s song “Shake It Off” before they met the pop star.
