Taylor Swift superfan, Holly Seay, fulfilled her dream of seeing the 'Cruel Summer' singer in concert just weeks before she died of colon cancer.
The 28-year-old, who had lived with cystic fibrosis since she was very young and was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2020, was released from hospital just 24 hours before attending the sold-out Eras Tour show at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia on April 29.
She passed away just weeks later on June 26.
Last week, Holly's close friend Bianca Clark took to TikTok to commemorate her, revealing seeing Tay Tay perform live again had been on her bucket list ever since she realised her health was deteriorating.
In a video which has been viewed more than 25 million times, Holly can be seen in a wheelchair singing along to hit song 'Miss Americana & The Heartbreak Prince.'
"Monday morning my best friend went to Heaven," Bianca wrote in the video's caption.
"She'd been in and out of the hospital for years but especially over the last few months. The one thing she told all of her doctors was that she WILL be going to see Taylor Swift even if she has to drive straight from the hospital," she continued.
"They released her 24 hours in advance for her to be able to go to the ATL Night 2 show. Thank you @Taylor Swift for bringing our girl so much happiness. This was the first time in years we saw her face filled with so much joy and her be the dancing queen she always was."
In a further video, Bianca shares clips of the pair having the time of their lives at the concert to the backing track of 'New Year's Day' from Swift's reputation album, revealing that they attended the event with another friend, her mum and 'one of her favourite nurses.'
She added: "They recorded so many sweet moments that we've all looked back on countless times."
Swifties around the world were touched by Bianca's video and expressed their happiness that the friends were able make such a beautiful memory together.
One person wrote in the comments: "How special that you got to share this experience with her. Sending all my love to you and everyone else who loved Holly so dearly."
"So glad she made it to see Taylor. She looks so happy here," another commented about the joy Holly radiated in the clips.
And, a last wrote, "I'm at peace knowing I lost that ticket war so she could go."
Long Live Holly!
