Taylor Swift Super Fan Gets Her Wish, Meets Singer Before Going Deaf

Taylor Swift super fan Jorja Hope, 12, got the surprise of her life when she met the star at her Sydney, Australia concert on Saturday night (November 28).

Jorja has been diagnosed with an inner-ear condition that will make her eventually go deaf.

“Things like this happen to other people, not to people like us,” mom Melissa told Australia’s Today show. “It’s been a fairy tale.” The first thing Jorja said when she was diagnosed was, “I won’t be able to hear Taylor Swift sing.”

“Jorja has battled her whole life from being born preemie with growth problems, to surgeries on her ears already and five surgeries for broken bones,” Jorja‘s mom added. “She is a fighter, no matter what happens, she smiles and keeps going.”

Jorja‘s twin-sister set up a Facebook campaign and helped make her sister’s dream come true.
