    (CNN) -- Eight-year-old Laney Brown will never see Christmas again. Her doctors say leukemia will take her soon.

    Laney loves music. Loves to dance, loves Taylor Swift, loves Christmas carols.

    As her dying wishes, she asked to meet the country superstar and for some people to come by her house for a night of caroling, CNN affiliate WFMZ reported.

    On Friday -- her birthday -- Laney and Swift video chatted through FaceTime, a software application that allows callers to see each other on Apple products.

    Saturday night the singers came. At first it was hundreds of people, then thousands. Then it was 10,000.......more......

    This makes me tear up every time I read a Laney update. I'm originally from the Reading area and so wish I could've gone to the caroling event last night. It's astonishing how fast this came together and snowballed into a huge event. I pray for a miracle but at least hope that she makes it to Christmas for her family's sake.
