Prom season is right around the corner and Sterling High School senior, Kevin McGuire knows exactly who he wants as his date. McGuire, 18, of Somerdale New Jersey, wants nothing more than for country pop star Taylor Swift to accompany him to his senior prom. I know you’re probably all thinking, well who wouldn’t!? But let me tell you a little about this ambitious, “real life Super Man” before you judge. Kevin McGuire was diagnosed with Leukemia when he was just 13 years old, and after undergoing years of painful treatments and chemotherapy, won his battle against the dangerous disease in April 2010. Tragically, McGuire relapsed just recently, and although he now fights this life-threatening disease for the second time, he refuses to let it break his spirit.

With the help of older sister Victoria, McGuire is working hard to make this dream become a reality, and personally I couldn’t think of a single person more deserving. Victoria created a Facebook page to raise awareness about this dream of her little brother’s, and has now over 40,000 members supporting. On the Facebook wall, Victoria writes, “Nothing and I mean NOTHING brightens Kevin’s day more than Taylor Swift! Let’s make this happen people! Taylor, please go to prom with Kevin!!! No one deserves it more! Ps prom just so happens to fall on his birthday!” What better birthday present than to have your biggest dream come true?!

For more information on Kevin, visit http://www.facebook.com/events/338272569549921/ and join the event! Help spread the word and help make Kevin’s dream come true! Tweet it with the hashtag #TeamKevin, share it on Facebook, tell your friends! Every post helps, and so does every prayer!
