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:
