The singer did not divulge the nature or severity of the cancer, saying “I’d like to keep the details of her condition and treatment plans private.”Swift’s parents live in a $2.5 million Nashville, Tennessee mansion she purchased for them in 2011.
In a post on Tumblr, the blogging platform, Swift said that for Christmas last year, she asked her mom to get screened for potential health issues, “just to ease some worries of mine.” Her mother felt “perfectly fine” but went to the doctor for tests anyway “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,” Swift added.
