In an essay she wrote for Elle Magazine, pop star Taylor Swift revealed that her mother, Andrea, has cancer. This is the second time that Swift's mother has battled the disease.
In the article, Swift wrote about the 30 things that she's learned before turning 30. No. 24 revealed that her parents' battles with cancer had put her life into perspective.
"It’s taught me that there are real problems and then there’s everything else," wrote the singer. "My mom's cancer is a real problem. I used to be so anxious about daily ups and downs. I give all of my worry, stress, and prayers to real problems now."
Swift revealed in April 2015 that her mother was battling cancer. She was silent on the issue except for letting her fans know that her mother had beat cancer.
"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," Swift said at the time, "Or peace of mind in knowing that they're healthy and there’s nothing to worry about."
Fans took to social media to express their prayers and good wishes for Swift and her mother.
