Riley Patients Take To Twitter In Hopes Of Taylor Swift Visit

Blog Banner 3

Patients at Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health have started a social media campaign to persuade pop star Taylor Swift to pay them a visit when she’s in Indianapolis for her upcoming concert.

It all started when Rachel Lamb tweeted to Swift saying, “Hey @taylorswift13 you should come visit me while I'm at @RileyHospital #Indy.”

Then, more Riley patients joined the effort. They made signs and crafted tweets, hoping to get Swift’s attention.

Now, with the help of friends, family and the entire community, it has been a trending topic locally for several days straight.

You can help Taylor’s young fans who are not able to leave the hospital for the concert get a visit from her. Just head over to Twitter and ask @TaylorSwift13 to visit @RileyHospital to make patients’ #WildestDreams come true. And don’t forget to use the campaign hashtag, #Riley4Taylor.

Swift will perform at the Banker’s Life Fieldhouse on September 16 at 6 p.m.
