Taylor Swift made a super fan’s dream come true by meeting the young cancer sufferer at a Los Angeles hospital on Wednesday.

The “Love Story” hitmaker paid a visit to five-year-old Khloe after learning about the young girl’s online campaign to meet her idol.

Khloe’s aunt started a page on Facebook.com titled ‘Stay Fearless Khloe’, in homage to Swift’s hit album Fearless.

The description on the page reads: “Please help my brave niece, Khloe, meet Taylor Swift. Khloe is bravely battling cancer at 5 and ADORES Taylor.

“Khloe is… a MAJOR Swiftie (fan)! She sings & dances to Taylor everyday!… I asked her a few weeks back why she loved Taylor so much and she replied, ‘She makes me happy when I’m sad.'”

After the campaign gained pace and hashtags including #FaithFamilyandTaylorSwift began trending on social media, the Grammy winner visited her ward and posed for photos with the youngster that were posted on the Facebook page.

In one picture, Swift and Khloe are holding up a sign which read, “Today I broke up with my tumor and we are never, ever getting back together!”
