Sales of Taylor Swift 's song, "Ronan," have generated more than $100,000 for The V Foundation for Cancer Research.

Taylor was inspired to write the song after reading the Rockstar Ronan blog, written by Maya Thompson about her late son, Ronan . The boy died just days shy of his fourth birthday in May 2011 after a battle with neuroblastoma cancer.

Taylor gave a songwriting credit on "Ronan" to Maya Thompson, since her writings inspired the song. All of Taylor's proceeds are going to combat childhood cancer. For more information on The V Foundation for Cancer Research, check out JimmyV.org .
