Taylor Swift has some sad news. The singer-songwriter just revealed via a Tumblr post that her mother, 57-year-old Andrea Finlay, has been diagnosed with cancer.

Tay revealed that one of the things she asked her mum for Christmas last year was to go to the doctor to get checked for any health issues. Well, the results came in and they're not good. "I’m saddened to tell you that my mom has been diagnosed with cancer. I’d like to keep the details of her condition and treatment plans private, but she wanted you to know," the Shake It Off singer wrote.

Tay added that her mum Andrea wanted us to know because our "parents may be too busy juggling everything they’ve got going on to go to the doctor, and maybe you reminding them to go get checked for cancer could possibly lead to an early diagnosis and an easier battle."

Stay strong, Tay.
