A home video posted on Facebook is making its rounds online as it captures Taylor Swift recently visiting a sweet young fan at Boston Children's Hospital.

Watch as Swift kneels next to Jordan Lee Nickerson, 7, in his hospital room. She opens a guitar case and takes hold of her Baby Taylor to play a song for Nickerson. But, what does he want to hear? And will he sing and dance with her? Press play above to find out.

 

"When Jordan was just 9 months old, he was diagnosed with Williams Syndrome, a rare genetic disorder. Because of the syndrome, he has both physical and developmental disabilities. He also had a severe heart condition," details his Facebook page, Jordan's Brave Page, run by his family. "At just 18 months old, he underwent open heart surgery to repair part of his aorta."

"Unfortunately, that initial cardiac battle would prove to not be his hardest," further details the Facebook page. "On July 24, 2014, Jordan was diagnosed with Leukemia. He is currently in Children's Hospital Boston and faces a long struggle."

 

According to The Hollywood Gossip, during her visit with the boy, "Taylor reportedly hung out for hours, snacking on Jell-O and taking Jordan on in an intense game of air hockey."
