Taylor Swift is known for her dedication to her fans, whether it's surprising them with pop-up performances or as simple as interacting with them on social media.

On Mother's Day, Swift responded to a Massapequa fan who had reached out to the artist in need of her condolences. Kaileen Fox wrote a public message to Swift on her Tumblr explaining that she was having trouble getting through the holiday, as she had recently lost her mother.

"Today is Mother's Day, a day most people spend with their mothers thanking them for everything they do," Kaileen wrote. "But for me, I can't spend this day with my mom because she's in heaven."

Kaileen continues to write that Swift's music has helped her cope during the most difficult year of her life.

"For a while, I felt empty," Kaileen wrote. "But, because of you, I got through something that was the hardest thing in the world for me. Today's going to be another hard day, but I know with you on my side I can get through anything."

Swift, who recently announced that her own mother is battling cancer, saw Kaileen's message and responded directly.

"You've lived through my worst fear," Swift wrote. "I admire and respect your ability to put forth such a sunny, sweet disposition when you've been through something so dark and tragic so recently."

Swift ended her message by noting that she would get herself an iced coffee and cheer to Kaileen, who refers to herself on social media as "iced coffee girl."

Kaileen's Tumblr post has since received more than 18,000 likes.
