UPDATE: Our partners at B98.5 saw our story and have offered the family four suite tickets to see Taylor Swift in Atlanta on October 24. They’re still talking with her management. Fingers crossed they can do more!
ATLANTA – A mysterious illness claimed the life of Atlanta mother Stefanie Ballard. Now her community is asking for help from star Taylor Swift.
Stefanie Ballard died August 2nd after developing a strange infection three weeks ago. She became ill after a day of swimming with her daughters Riley, 6, and Reese, 4.
Riley turns 7 next month, and her mother had hoped to take her to Swift’s concert in Atlanta on October 24th. Now Stefanie’s community is trying to make sure the girls have something to look forward to during this devastating time.
Friends, family and even strangers are now pleading to Swift on Twitter and Facebook using the hashtags #bigdreamslittlegirl, #balladsforballards and #wishes4riley.
