Ed Sheeran ‘Marries’ Fan With Brain Cancer

Ed Sheeran agreed to “marry” a fan suffering from brain cancer when she proposed to him before his concert in Glasgow, Scotland on Thursday.
The British singer met 19-year-old cancer patient Katie Papworth backstage right before he kicked off his show. Papworth, who has been battling the aggressive form of cancer for eight years, lost her eyesight to the disease just two weeks prior. After meeting the musician, the teen presented him with an “engagement” ring engraved with an infinity symbol in the hopes of becoming Mrs. Sheeran.
Sheeran accepted her proposal and can be seen holding the ring in a photo that he took with Papworth, her mother Trish, and her caregiver ( see full pic below).
Papworth also gave Sheeran a painting she drew before she lost her sight, and the singer went on to rave about the artwork. He also signed another picture that she drew, with the inscription “Katie, lovely to finally meet my wife”
