NASHVILLE, TN. (THECOUNT) — Taylor Swift‘s mother, who is currently being treated for breast cancer, has been diagnosed with a brain tumor, according to the singer.

Swift, 30, who first revealed her mother had breast cancer in 2015, is now saying doctors found the tumor while her mother, Andrea Swift, 62, was undergoing chemotherapy treatments for breast cancer.


“And the symptoms of what a person goes through when they have a brain tumor is nothing like what we’ve ever been through with her cancer before,” Swift said. “So it’s just been a really hard time for us as a family.”

She paid tribute to Andrea last year on her album “Lover” with a touching song called “Soon You’ll Get Better” in which she opened up about how her family has been dealing with her diagnosis.

“And I hate to make this all about me/ But who am I supposed to talk to?/ What am I supposed to do?/ If there’s no you,” Swift sings.

“We as a family decided to put this on the album, and it’s something I’m so proud of, but it’s just really hard,” she said during a YouTube Live event last year. “I can’t sing it. It’s hard to just emotionally deal with that song.”
