Swift heard about Brown's illness through the Make-A-Wish America charity and surprised the youngster with a video call on Dec. 20 -- Brown's eighth birthday.
A Facebook post reads, "Laney was so nervous to talk to [Swift]because she is such a famous celebrity. I was actually worried that when Taylor Facetimed her that she would be too scared to talk but Taylor was fabulous!! She really engaged Laney in conversation. Laney lit up and had a huge smile on her face. I can't thank Taylor enough for taking time out from her family to make Laney's birthday very memorable. We will hold that memory in our hearts forever."
