Taylor Swift Invites Teen to ACM Awards

Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift couldn’t accept Kevin McGuire’s prom proposal – but did one much cooler. She invited the N.J. teen to be her ACM Awards date!

Pretty amazing huh? McGuire thinks so too.

"I don't know what else to say," he told Philadelphia's CBS 3. "I was just trying not to throw up!"

"I have cancer. Cancer doesn't have me," he added. "Taylor, I would love to go with you."

McGuire, 18, was diagnosed with Leukemia at age 13. After years of battling the fatal disease, doctors declared him cancer free in 2010. The Sterling High teen is a positive force for his community – their very own “real life Super Man.”

He sadly relapsed for a second time, inciting his sister Victoria McGuire to take action. She created a Facebook page seeking Swift’s “yes” to the prom proposal for her brother. The page went viral and the country-pop star responded!

"Kevin, I'm so sorry but I won't be able to make it to your prom," Swift wrote on Facebook Friday. "But I was wondering, the ACM Awards are coming up. Would you be my date? Love, Taylor."

Woo-hoo! We just love when our celebs do good.
