Taylor Swift made an eight-year-old fan's day by popping in to visit her in hospital. And when Taylor left the hospital, she gave Isabella a lasting gift. "She said she had to meet her because she was so inspired by her story and honoured that her music helped her". "She brought her a bag with goodies from her tour".
Lilly said Isabella was "shocked, ' "speechless" and 'so happy" over the visit from the singer.
And Taylor Swift did not disappoint! "I heard you were here and I wanted to visit you, but maybe you can come and visit me", the little girl said in the impromptu video, which was shot by an Arizona Republic photographer and uploaded online.
The 28-year-old took her own parents on the trip too.

Accompanying Swift were her parents, Scott and Andrea: "They were the sweetest people, and it meant so much to my husband and me as parents", Lilly McCune, Isabella's mother, told People.
"She was about to leave and I said 'Taylor, can I have a hug?' And she said, 'Yeah!"
The family never got their hopes, but when they found out that Swift would in fact surprise Isabella, her mother said it was the "best kept secret". "We have so much respect for them and how they raised her". She arrived around 1 p.m., according to a report on azcentral.com, and stayed for about 20 minutes, chatting with McCune and her family and taking photos. And throughout her ordeal, the youngster has been cheered by listening to her favourite songs by the "Shake It Off" hitmaker.
