The police in Dover, Delaware, helped a 13 year old girl attend Taylor Swift’s concert!
It wasn’t so long ago that a member of the Dover police department became an Internet sensation after a video of him driving and lip-syncing Taylor Swift’s Shake It Off while on duty went viral. And now the local police department is linked to Swift’s name once again after the news of their heartwarming gesture towards a 13 year old fan of Swift’s broke out.
The 13 year old Victoria Marsh was diagnosed with a rare bone cancer disease, called Osteosarcoma, in late 2014. Thus, she was forbidden from attending her idol Taylor Swift’s concert earlier this June. Victoria, who is also suffering from Down Syndrome, wasn’t able to accept the tickets to the show, which were gifted to her by the kind local police. Surprisingly enough, the police couldn’t take “No” for an answer. Instead, they found a way to convince Victoria’s doctors to allow her to attend the concert. They helped the 13 year old girl film a video, which explained her touching story. Not only that, but the police also helped Victoria popularize her video on the web. It eventually got more than 45,000 views on YouTube and it was shared over 65,000 times on Facebook.
Victoria was finally allowed to leave the hospital for a total of 8 hours on the night of Swift’s concert. Thus, the teenager not only got to attend the concert and see the 25 year old Bad Blood hit maker’s gig, but she also got the chance to meet her in person and pose for photos backstage.
And it was all thanks to the kind-hearted officers at Delaware’s Dover Police Department!
