2015-03-04 12:37

Los Angeles - Taylor Swift granted a dying four-year-old fan's last wish by speaking to her on the phone for 20 minutes.

The 25-year-old singer made a surprise FaceTime call to Jalene Salinas, who is suffering from an aggressive form of terminal brain cancer, on Monday to make the youngster's final dream come true after she expressed a desire to dance with Taylor to her hit Shake it Off.

Speaking to Jalene's mother Jennifer Arriagas during the phone conversation, she said: "I got back from London and I heard about her and it's just unfathomable to have to watch your baby go through this."

According to a USA Today report, Jalene was said to be "in pain" and as a result "didn't talk much" to her heroine but she did say "bye and thank you" to the superstar singer.

Jalene's final dream came true after Taylor's fans - known as Swifties - started a social networking campaign to get #ShakeItOffJalene trending after hearing about her dying wish.

Following the surprise chat, Jennifer admitted she is delighted all of Jalene's wishes have now been "checked off".

She told KENS 5 News: "We can check everything off and as her mom it means the world to me that she got to do and see [everything] and everything is checked off now.

"It means so much to me that you reached out to us."

Check out some of the tweets in support of Jalene:
