Here's How Taylor Swift Gave Back to One of Her Backup Dancer's Nephews With Cancer

Taylor Swift is giving back to someone she knows in a big way.

Toshi Davidson was one of Swift's backup dancers in her "1989" tour. Davidson's 13-month-old nephew was diagnosed with cancer.

On social media, he shared his nephew's condition and his GoFundMe page that was set up with a goal to raise $20,000.

"Baby Ayden, I'm lucky enough to perform with your uncle Toshi on tour," the singer said in her comment with her donation of $50,000, according to CNN.

"All of us are praying for you and your mama and sending so much love your way. Love, Taylor."

According to CNN, Davidson showed his appreciation for Swift's donation on Instagram, writing that Swift is "an angel and my family and I can't thank her enough."

"She is such an incredible him being. This will help Lil Toshi in this time of need."
