    Taylor Swift has donated $15,500 to a GoFundMe account of a fan whose family is struggling with medical bills.

    Sadie Bartell's mother has been in a coma for three years, and the family is worried about losing their Idaho Falls, Idaho home because of mounting medical bills. The 19-year-old tweeted that her mother became ill two days before she went to see Swift in a concert.

    Swift made the donation over the weekend with the message, "Love, Taylor, Meredith and Olivia Swift." Meredith and Olivia are Swift's cats.

    Others followed the singer's lead and donated.

    Bartell thanked Swift and called the singer her "whole entire life" and "a miracle" in a Facebook post. 

    "She shows up every time I need her," Bartrell wrote. "I wish that I could express how much it means to me that ANYONE has helped my family over the years, let alone Taylor. She is the light at the end of the tunnel and is truly the best thing that has ever happened to me. I will never be able to comprehend this."
