Ah, the power of social media! Without it, this 20-year-old gal wouldn't have been able to meet Ed Sheeran!
Jess Knight was so excited to see the British crooner in concert when she bought her tickets last year, but unfortunately cancer — Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, to be more specific — got in the way of her big night out.
Instead of coming to terms with the fact that wouldn't be seeing Teddy's show, the Kiwi native and her friends took to Twitter and Facebook to try and get Ed's attention… and it worked!
On her 20th birthday, the Thinking Out Loud singer stopped by the Auckland hospital to visit the birthday gal!
Jess shared her selfie with Ed and thanked everyone who helped made this meeting possible:
"I would just like to say a huge thank you to you guys. Thank you so much for all of sharing and hash tagging you guys did. You all helped make my birthday the best ever because guess what!? WE DID IT!!!
Ed came and visited it! 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!
It's certainly going to be a hard birthday to top next year. Good luck to her family and friends. LOLz!
