READING, Pa. -

Berks County native Taylor Swift will have a big date in two months.

Kevin McGuire, a brave teenager from New Jersey who's battling cancer, asked the country music superstar to be his prom date.

We first reported about Kevin McGuire's special wish yesterday.

Taylor swiftly posted this on her Facebook page:

"Kevin,  I'm so sorry but I won't be able to make it to your prom. But I was wondering, the ACM Awards are coming up.   Would you be my date? Love, Taylor."

We hear that Kevin has accepted Taylor's request.

He's  being treated at Children's Hospital in Philadelphia.

The  Academy of Country Music Awards is April 1 in Las Vegas.
