HOUSTON -- A young cancer patient who wanted nothing more than to meet Taylor Swift is on Cloud 9 after the pop singer made her dream come true.

So Fetner's friends turned to social media and ABC-13 for help grabbing Swift's attention. It worked, and the pop singer came through for her.

On Wednesday, Fetner met Swift during the singer's concert at Minute Maid Park.

Fetner's mother send Eyewitness News photos of her smiling daughter at the concert. Swift's camp also released a photo from their meet-and-greet.
