'Best present ever!' Taylor Swift visits young fan with cancer for Christmas

It's the season of giving and Taylor Swift didn't hold back on giving one of her biggest fans an early Christmas present.

The 26-year-old mega star made a holiday detour to visit Delaney Clements, a 12-year-old girl in Colorado who has stage 4 Neuroblastoma. Clements has been battling the cancer she was 8 years old.

Swift took Clements, a dedicated Swiftie — with an Instagram bio to prove it — by total surprise.

"Literally speechless right now!!!!!" the young fan wrote on her Instagram page, alongside a photo of with Swift. "My new best friend (as I call her now) made a special stop from going home to Tennessee and surprised me and gave me the best present/ hugg ever!!"

Clements couldn't contain her tears of joy when fist meeting Swift.

But those went away quick and soon the two were just having fun. They posed in multiple pictures, including some of them taking silly selfies. Swift even posed with Clements' friends and family.

Swift may have some serious star power, but Clements is something of a celebrity herself. After years of working to build awareness around Neuroblastoma, as well as to help other sufferers by creating the nonprofit organization Delaney Donates, Clements has become an inspiration to many.

She even made an appearance on TODAY last year when her friend, Kamryn Renfro, shaved her head in solidarity, and was subsequently forbidden to attend school.

Unfortunately though her condition has worsened. Earlier this month, Clements' mother Wendy Campbell revealed on Facebook that her daughters cancer had moved to her head. Since then, they've decided to keep her "as comfortable as possible and to keep her spirits uplifted as she travels on a journey we fought so hard to avoid."

One way was to start a campaign for Swift to visit the 12-year-old. They launched one using the hashtag #DelaneyMeetTaylor.

From the looks of the collage she posted on Instagram, Taylor Swift was pretty psyched about the meet-up, too!
