Ed Sheeran has been laying low on Twitter and Facebook over the past few months. But, a story did reach him recently via social media. A story that made him react…and melt our hearts.
Melody Driscoll is 9. She can’t walk or talk, and has spent nearly 80 percent of her life in a hospital. Melody suffers from Rett syndrome, a condition that “causes problems in brain function that are responsible for cognitive, sensory, emotional, motor, and autonomic function.” Doctors, sadly, can’t figure out why this happened to her. They can only try to make her life a happy one while trying to manage her pain.
Her mom (Karina) says that Ed’s music has soothed and relaxed Melody over the last few years.
So, without bodyguards or a camera crew, Ed went to visit Melody. With a pink ukelele.
Get ready for a cry.
THIS is why we love Ed Sheeran, isn’t it??!!
