Taylor Swift revealed today that her mother, Andrea Swift, has been diagnosed with a brain tumor.
The tumor was found while Andrea was undergoing treatment for her second round of cancer. Taylor took to Tumblr to speak about her mother's original diagnosis.
"This is something my family and I thought you should know about now," Taylor shared in April 2015. She asked that - for Christmas (assumingly in 2014) - that one of her mother's gifts to her was to get a thorough medical scanning.
