Young leukemia patient gets to meet Taylor Swift

- A 10-year-old leukemia patient's wildest dreams came true during Taylor Swift's tour stop in Tampa on Halloween weekend: she had a private meet and greet with Taylor herself!

The Children's Dream Fund of St. Pete arranged for Marissa to attend the concert, but they couldn't lock down a meeting with Swift.

It wasn't until the last minute, when an anonymous donor gave Marissa the meet and greet passes, that she learned her wish would be granted.

The Dream Fund tells FOX13 Marissa even sang for Swift,  and the pop star complimented her on her voice.
