Taylor Swift donated $50,000 to the GoFundMe page of a young fan battling leukemia.

Swift made the donation to Naomi Oakes’ GoFundMe page after watching a video of the 11-year-old’s battle, which uses “Bad Blood” as her “fight song,” reported BuzzFeed.

According to Oakes family, the young Swift fan was diagnosed with Acute Myelogenous Leukemia, which will require 6-9 months of intensive therapy in the hospital. Because of the treatment, Oakes would miss a Taylor Swift concert on Aug. 18, BuzzFeed reported.

The family said they hoped to get Swift’s attention with the video “and maybe get her to share a #TeamNaomi on her Instagram.”

Swift went the extra mile and donated $50,000 to Oakes’ GoFundMe page.
