Oh, and they got to watch Swift run through her upcoming show.

McCune's burns will keep her from attending Swift's tour opener in Phoenix on Tuesday, so the pop star brought a little ray of sunshine to her young fan in a hospital visit.

Last Wednesday, upon hearing Swift was rehearsing for the tour in nearby Glendale, Arizona, McCune made a video requesting her pop idol visit her in the hospital, since she wouldn't be able to attend the show this week.

She even signed McCune's journal, writing, "Isabella!" She said she had to meet her because she was so inspired by her story and honored that her music helped her'.

Lilly said Isabella was "shocked, ' "speechless" and 'so happy" over the visit from the singer.

Get the tissues ready, Taylor Swift surprised a very special fan after learning that she's going to have to miss her concert. Taylor also posed with Isabella and her family for some pictures, but Isabella says her favorite moment during the 30 minute visit was getting a hug from Taylor.

Taylor invited her to one of her concerts once she recovers.

'Her parents came too and they were the sweetest people, and it meant so much to my husband and me as parents, ' Lilly revealed.

The girl's plea went viral, eventually landing in front of the 28-year-old singer. 'We have so much respect for them and how they raised her'.

The McCune family says Isabella suffered third-degree burns over 65 per cent of her body when a fire erupted at a neighbourhood party on St Patrick's Day in March. And throughout her ordeal, the youngster has been cheered by listening to her favourite songs by the "Shake It Off" hitmaker.

"During the changes, the staff has been asking how they can help her deal with her pain, something that would distract her". McCune was burned so badly, her bandage changes could take several hours, and she listened toSwift's music to stay calm.
