Ed Sheeran helped a 22-year-old fan with cystic fibrosis scratch one item off her bucket list. Channon Petrides got to meet Ed backstage before one of his recent concerts in London.
Channon recently took herself off the organ transplant wait list, and wrote a list of things she wants to do before she dies. That included going to an Ed Sheeran concert, and possibly meeting him. She made a GoFundMe page to help achieve her goals, and her wishes were apparently noticed by Ed.
She received an email from Ed’s people before his July 10th concert that read, “Ed would like to invite you plus one back to say hello tomorrow before the show.”
Channon told the U.K. tabloid The Mirror after the concert, “He signed my program and we took some selfies together. He smelled amazing.”
Next up on her bucket list: a hot air balloon ride and a One Direction concert. No word on whether the boys will meet and greet her as well.
