Jalene Salinas, age 4 and fighting terminal brain cancer, had just one dying wish her San Antonio, Texas parents had yet to fulfill: to dance with Taylor Swift in her hit song "Shake It Off." Well, once Taylor heard the news, Taylor FaceTimed the toddler and made her day. Ain't that sweet?


Taylor heard about this little tyke's dream after #ShakeItOffJalene started trending on Twitter last weekend. So she decided to FaceTime the family for a full 20 minutes. Check out their emotional interaction below:

According to mom Jennifer Arriagas, Jalene didn't say much, but her eyes lit up when she saw her favorite singer on her mom's cell phone. And doncha love how gracious Taylor was, thanking Jalene for liking her song and saying how beautiful she looked?

I'll bet this meant the world to Jalene and her parents, who say they've bent over backwards to tick off every item on their daughter's wish list, but this last one seemed tricky. You've gotta hand it to Taylor for taking the initiative on this, not to mention her sweet time without rushing her fan off the phone.

If your kids could FaceTime with anyone, who would it be?
