Taylor announced the news via her Tumblr, telling fans that Andrea wanted her news to be made public in order to potentially help other families. She said:

“She wanted you to know because your parents may be too busy juggling everything they’ve got going on to go to the doctor, and maybe you reminding them to go get checked for cancer could possibly lead to an early diagnosis and an easier battle.”

She said:

“I’ve watched this milestone artist from the time she was a tangled-haired little girl growing up on our farm, full of imagination and creativity until right now, as she prepares for her next world tour, and ever since then, her favorite thing in the world to do has been to write a song, tell a story, play a guitar, or piano, and I’ve seen those things carry her through every emotion, every experience in her life, good or bad. Now, every once in a while her dad, her brother or I find ourselves to be the subjects of those songs. Sometimes we’re merely the inspiration. Like the time she was 17 years old, and her dad and I strongly disapproved of a certain young man, and rightfully so. But she was mad. She was real mad, and she went to her room, and she closed the door, and she came out about an hour later with a song called “Love Story.'”
