Ann Oldenburg, USA TODAY 3:01 p.m. EDT April 9, 2015
Now, writes Swift, "The results came in, and I'm saddened to tell you that my mom has been diagnosed with cancer. I'd like to keep the details of her condition and treatment plans PRIVATE, but she wanted you to know."
Swift says that her mother wanted to urge fans to remind their parents to get CHECKED to "possibly lead to an early diagnosis and an easier battle."
And also for "peace of mind in knowing that they're healthy and there's nothing to worry about. She wanted you to know why she may not be at as many shows this tour. She's got an important battle to fight."
