Ed Sheeran visits cancer-stricken fan

British pop star Ed Sheeran made a cancer-stricken fan's wish come true by visiting her in hospital after she missed his concert in New Zealand.

The Sing hitmaker is currently on tour Down Under, and he took time out to meet devotee Jess Wright, who was diagnosed with leukemia shortly after buying tickets to Sheeran's gig in Auckland and was deemed too sick to attend the show over the weekend (11-12Apr15).


Sheeran visited Wright in Auckland Hospital on Sunday (12Apr15) - her 20th birthday - and posed for pictures with her and her friends.


Wright shared a photo of herself posing with her favorite singer, and added in a post on Facebook.com, "Ed came and visited! He was such a lovely guy! Really genuine and down to earth. I couldn't stop smiling! Thank you again! You will never know how much it meant to me!"
