The New Jersey teen who is fighting cancer and scored a date with Taylor Swift to The Academy of Country Music Awards is back in the hospital and won't make the show.
A Facebook post says 18-year-old Kevin McGuire was admitted to the hospital Friday night and can't keep his date with Swift. It was not clear why McGuire was hospitalized.
A publicist for Swift did not immediately return a message. The Facebook posting says Swift "is just as depressed as all of us to miss out on this date."
