(VIDEO) Mom Touched By Taylor Swift's Song About Her Son

What could be harder than losing your child? Taylor Swift's latest song, Ronan, about an Arizona boy who lost his battle with cancer just days before his fourth birthday, puts into music the raw emotions of a real mom who just went through that wrenching heartache.

The moving song was inspired by RockStar Ronan, a blog written by Maya Thompson about her young son's ill-fated struggle with childhood cancer.

Swift debuted the song on Friday night at the Stand Up To Cancer 2012 event, and Thompson, who heard the song for the first time that night, was incredibly touched. “He is absolutely the love of my life. He's such a fighter and he went through so much and never gave up until the second I told him it was time to stop fighting and just let go."
