The father of a young Swiftie who got her dying wish to meet the pop superstar during her n tour has issued a heartbreaking update on her condition.

Perth girl Scarlett Oliver captivated the country at Taylor Swift’s superstar Eras tour, seeing her idol perform after securing tickets to the Sydney show at Accor Stadium earlier this year.

She had only been given 12-18 months to live after being diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer known as high-grade glioma.

The encounter was shared across the world by fans on social media.

But in a heartbreaking twist after Scarlett’s brush with fame, her parents have revealed she may only have ‘weeks rather than months’ left.

In a statement on Instagram, her father Paul said his ‘beautiful’ child had not been doing well recently.

He said much of the school holidays had been spent in hospital due to complications with a feeding tube, vomiting and ‘extreme tiredness’.

‘Last night after discharge from hospital she suffered a significant seizure and was rushed to hospital via ambulance,’ Paul told his Instagram followers on Friday.

‘She has now stabilised but remains in hospital very unwell.’

He explained oncology doctors had delivered the grim news about Scarlett’s dire prognosis.
