She has a big heart as well as a big wallet. Taylor donated $50,000 to a US hospital, which will be used for “high-tech music therapy” to soothe children suffering from cancer. “Taylor Swift’s gift will help lift the spirits of many patients during a difficult time.” said Steven M. Altschuler, MD, chief executive officer of The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia which received the ‘Trouble’ singer’s payment. “Taylor Swift’s music is an inspiration to so many of our teen patients. We can think of no better way to use her gift than to grow our Adolescent and Young Adult initiative designed to support the emotional well-being of our teens with cancer,” added Lamia Barakat, Ph.D., psychologist and director of the Psychosocial Services Program at the cancer center.
