Taylor Swift Gets Prom Invite From New Jersey Student

By Hadas Kuznits

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — A New Jersey high school student undergoing treatment at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia is hoping to take a pop star to his senior prom.

Eighteen-year-old Kevin Maguire isn’t allowing leukemia to get in the way of his senior year at Sterling High School.

“Me and my sister we were talking about prom and how different it’s going to be from last year,” said Kevin. “I might lose my hair and I was wondering who would want to go with me?”

Kevin (pictured right) confided in his sister, Victoria, that his dream prom date would be pop star and Berks County native, Taylor Swift. Victoria took action and created a Facebook page for Kevin to help get the word out about his prom date idea.

The Facebook page is: ‘Taylor Swift Please Take Kevin McGuire To Prom.’

Within no time, Kevin had more than 200,000 supporters.

Kevin’s not sure what Taylor’s plans are on June 1, which also happens to be his 19th birthday, but he’d love to take her to prom.

“I will push your chair in. I will hold the door for you, I will do my best to make sure you have a great time,” said Kevin, adding, “So Taylor Swift, will you please go to prom with me and make my birthday one I’ll never forget?”

If it doesn’t happen, Kevin said he’ll still love Taylor.
