Cancer Patient Will Miss Taylor Swift Date Tonight

The Courier Post is reporting that Stratford High School senior Kevin McGuire will miss his date with Taylor Swift at the Academy of Country Music Awards tonight in Las Vegas. Here's an excerpt:
In his second bout with cancer, Stratford senior Kevin McGuire won over the Internet and Taylor Swift.
Now the fickle fight will keep the Sterling Regional High School senior from accompanying the superstar to tonight’s Academy of Country Music Awards.
Hours after being in “great spirits” Thursday and a day before his planned departure to Las Vegas, McGuire was dealt a 103-degree fever and taken to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, said Kevin’s mother Vicki McGuire.
He remained in the hospital Saturday, and his sister Victoria posted this message on the “Taylor Swift take KEVIN MCGUIRE TO PROM!” Facebook page:
“I am so sorry to announce this devastating news, but Kevin was admitted to the hospital last night, and is unable to attend the Academy of Country Music Awards with Taylor Swift. As we should all live by the moto “ live for today” a cancer patient feels the impact of these words far to hard.
Our prayers and thoughts go out to Kevin and his family. Here's hoping he has his dream date real soon!
