HARRISONVILLE, Mo. -- A thankful grandma recently recognized an anonymous seamstress who helped her granddaughter feel like a princess when she was crowned the homecoming queen of Harrisonville High School.

7-year-old Jordan Overcast is currently battling brain cancer and often sings Taylor Swift songs to help her through her treatment. In the process of helping the 7-year-old fulfill a life-long dream of meeting Swift, the high school in her hometown named Jordan the honorary homecoming queen.

Shortly after hearing about Jordan's story and what the high school was doing, an anonymous seamstress came forward and asked if she could make a dress for the 7-year-old to wear for her crowning.

"Jordan loves to be a princess and she loves dressing up so this was so exciting," Jordan's grandma Donna told FOX 4.

The seamstress was a complete stranger to Jordan and her family, but she says she wanted to help the family because her husband also battled cancer.

"She felt so beautiful in life in the last  few weeks," Donna told FOX 4. "She's just come to live happier than I've seen her in a long time so this means a lot."
