Taylor Swift to unveil song dedicated to cancer kid at charity telethon

Country sweetheart Taylor Swift has penned a new song dedicated to a three-year-old boy who died of cancer last year (11).

The Love Story hitmaker was so moved by the blog of Maya Thompson, documenting her son Ronan's battle with the disease, she came up with the track Ronan in his memory - and credited his mom as a co-writer.


Swift will debut the tune on the star-studded Stand Up 2 Cancer telethon, which will be broadcast on Friday night (07Sep12), according to the Associated Press.


Actress Gwyneth Paltrow has brought together a slew of her celebrity pals to raise awareness and funds for research into the disease, and the Los Angeles event will feature the likes of Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Justin Timberlake, Alicia Keys and Emma Stone.
