The generous star, 25, gave the money to a fund set up for 13-month-old Ayden, who is the nephew of Kim 'Toshi' Davidson, one of Taylor's dancers on her '1989' world tour, and also left a message on the GoFundMe page set up to help him.

"Baby Ayden, I'm lucky enough to perform with your uncle Toshi on tour. All of us are praying for you and your mama and sending so much love your way. Love, Taylor," she said.

An overwhelmed Toshi shared an Instagram showing Swift's donation and wrote, "So I get off the plane in Toronto and this is the first thing I see. @taylorswift is an angel and my family and I can't thank her enough...

"She is such an incredible human being ... This will help Lil Toshi in this time of need... Let's pray for him to beat this ... This unexpected gift is truly a blessing."
