LOS ANGELES — Taylor Swift announced on Thursday her mom has been diagnosed with cancer.

Swift wrote a Tumblr post explaining she asked her mom to get screened for any health issues at Christmas.

She agreed, and went in to get checked. There were no red flags and she felt perfectly fine, but she did it just to get me and my brother off her case about it. The results came in, and I’m saddened to tell you that my mom has been diagnosed with cancer. I’d like to keep the details of her condition and treatment plans private, but she wanted you to know.

Swift said she hopes that her fans will encourage their parents to get checked.

Thank you for caring about my family so much that she would want me to share this information with you. I hope and pray that you never get news like this.
