Los Angeles – Taylor Swift on Thursday afternoon shared some heartbreaking news with her fans via social media.

The 25-year-old wrote on Twitter; “Just so you know…”and added a link to her Tumblr account.

On her Tumblr account, which Taylor uses to interact with her fans on a daily bases, the Grammy-winning singer revealed that her mother has been diagnosed with cancer.

According to Taylor she begged her mother, Andrea, in December to go for a full medical checkup for some peace of mind.

Sadly the test results showed that Taylor’s mom has cancer.

Taylor wrote the following:

“I’m writing to you with an update I wish I wasn’t giving you, but it’s important and I’m used to sharing important events in my life with you. Usually when things happen to me, I process them and then write music about how I feel, and you hear it much later. This is something my family and I thought you should know about now.

“For Christmas this year, I asked my mom that one of her gifts to me be her going to the doctor to get screened for any health issues, just to ease some worries of mine. She agreed, and went in to get checked. There were no red flags and she felt perfectly fine, but she did it just to get me and my brother off her case about it.

“The results came in, and I’m saddened to tell you that my mom has been diagnosed with cancer. I’d like to keep the details of her condition and treatment plans private, but she wanted you to know.

“She wanted you to know because your parents may be too busy juggling everything they’ve got going on to go to the doctor, and maybe you reminding them to go get checked for cancer could possibly lead to an early diagnosis and an easier battle… Or peace of mind in knowing that they’re healthy and there’s nothing to worry about. She wanted you to know why she may not be at as many shows this tour. She’s got an important battle to fight.

“Thank you for caring about my family so much that she would want me to share this information with you. I hope and pray that you never get news like this.”
