Taylor Swift surprised a young cancer patient at a Boston, Massachusetts hospital recently with a visit and an impromptu performance. Six-year-old Jordan Nickerson was diagnosed with genetic disorder Williams Syndrome when he was a year old and is currently receiving treatment for Leukemia.

Over the weekend, Swift dropped by Nickerson’s room at Boston Children’s Hospital and delighted the boy by teaming up with him to sing her hit” We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.” She also posed for pictures with Nickerson and took part in a game of air hockey.
