Young Missouri girl fighting for her life dreams of meeting Taylor Swift

At seven-years old, life is anything but easy for Jordan Overcast from Harrisonville, Mo., but you'd never know it by the way she smiles and sings and dances, especially when she hears a song by her favorite, Taylor Swift.

When Jordan was just 23-months-old doctors found a malignant brain tumor embedded in her brain stem.

She spent a year at Children's Mercy and battled each day. During that time, her vision and hearing were deteriorating. Doctors said they didn't expect Jordan to make it to her fifth birthday, but Jordan and her family were going to do their best to prove that wrong and combat Jordan's illness.

As Jordan endures the pain and effects of her latest treatment, she continues to be uplifted by Taylor Swift songs and by those who love her.  Her sweet spirit and strength bring joy to her family. When Jordan is well-enough, her family watches her perform Taylor Swift songs in the living room.  Jordan and her family hope one day she'll be singing one of her favorite Swift songs  "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" to the cancer that has been with her most of her life.
