Taylor Swift has granted a young girl with cancer’s wish to meet her.

During the pop superstar’s Sydney Eras Tour show on Friday, she gave the coveted “22” hat to 9-year-old Australian resident Scarlett Oliver, whose stepmother Natalie had shared her story and desire to meet Swift via social media.

“Scarlett is a 9-year-old from Perth, and she was diagnosed in October last year with a high grade glioma — this is a very aggressive brain cancer with no cure,” wrote Natalie on a fan page for Swift, 34, on Facebook earlier this week, according to a screenshot shared to X (formerly Twitter).

She continued, “The prognosis given to us was 12-18 months from diagnosis. She has been an absolute warrior through surgeries, radiation and other treatments (all done to try and prolong her life.)”

Taylor Swift has granted a young girl with cancer’s wish to meet her.

During the pop superstar’s Sydney Eras Tour show on Friday, she gave the coveted “22” hat to 9-year-old Australian resident Scarlett Oliver, whose stepmother Natalie had shared her story and desire to meet Swift via social media.

She continued, “The prognosis given to us was 12-18 months from diagnosis. She has been an absolute warrior through surgeries, radiation and other treatments (all done to try and prolong her life.)”

Natalie said the Make-a-Wish Foundation had previously granted Scarlett’s wish to meet Swift — but the organization was ultimately unable to make it happen. Instead, the stepmother-stepdaughter duo scored tickets to the “Love Story” singer’s performance at Accor Stadium.

“Scarlett is so excited and would absolutely love to receive the 22 hat from Taylor (as would everyone else I’m sure),” continued the Facebook post, which referenced a part in Swift’s Eras Tour show where she gives a black hat worn during “22” to a pre-selected fan in the crowd.

“I just want her to experience everything in life and if anyone deserves a little happiness it’s her,” wrote Natalie. “She deserves the world.”

On Wednesday, she posted to Facebook again and shared a photo of Scarlett holding a sign that read, “Taylor can I have the 22 hat? Please.”

Alongside the image, Natalie asked “friends far and wide” to share the post, noting that Scarlett was “beyond excited” for the concert. “We would love to make this happen for our strong, beautiful girl!! You never know what’s possible,” concluded the post.

Ultimately, Scarlett’s wish was granted at the concert. According to a video of the moment on X, Swift leaned down, gave the young girl a hug and kissed her hands before placing the hat on her head.
