Taylor Swift to debut song for cancer victim

will pay tribute to a young with a special on Friday’s “Stand Up to Cancer” telethon.

“Ronan” is dedicated to a 4-year-old boy who died last year of neuroblastoma. Swift wrote the song after reading the blog of Ronan’s mother, Maya Thompson, who is credited as a co-writer.

According to a person familiar with the show, but who asked not to be identified because they were not authorized to speak, the song has never been performed in public. After the telethon, it will be available on iTunes; all proceeds will go to cancer-related charities.

“Stand Up to Cancer” will air on all the major networks and cable channels. Besides Swift, it will feature celebrities including Tom Hanks, Julia Roberts, Gwyneth Paltrow, Justin Timberlake and more.

  1. Thank you for adding to the awareness and support of cancer. I’ve written two songs, one about cancer and one about going through trials and looking back on them. Reaching out for support and help, and the joy of having come up through affliction. Here are the links I hope you find them connecting, and possibly helpful.
