Taylor Swift has revealed that her mother has been diagnosed with a brain tumor. Her mother Andrea Swift, 62, was first diagnosed with unidentified cancer in 2015.
She was undergoing chemotherapy for cancer. But recently Singer for the first time opened up about the health condition of her mother publicly.
She revealed this in an interview with Variety ahead of her new documentary Miss Americana. Miss Americana, a Netflix original documentary of Taylor Swift scheduled to release on 31 January.
Swift explained: “She was going through chemo, and that’s a hard enough thing for a person to go through. While she was going through treatment, they found a brain tumor.”
In an interview, she openly talked about her mother’s health and explained how hard this situation is for her family.
“Cancer is a hard enough thing for a person to go through, making the tumor news even tougher. The symptoms of what a person goes through when they have a brain tumor are nothing like what we’ve ever been through with her cancer before. So it’s just been a really hard time for us as a family,” she explained.
Swift also explained that she shortened her tour to support her mother.
She added: “Yeah, that’s it. That’s the reason. I mean, we don’t know what is going to happen. We don’t know what treatment we’re going to choose. It just was the decision to make at the time, for right now, for what’s going on.”
