Ed Sheeran sends video message to leukemia sufferer

British pop star Ed Sheeran sent a video message to a fan suffering from leukemia after learning he will be getting married in hospital.

The Thinking Out Loud hitmaker recorded a touching message for Jack Jordan and his childhood sweetheart Laura Cant after he heard that Jordan missed out on a life-saving bone marrow transplant now has less than three weeks to live.

In the video Sheeran says, "Hey Jack and Laura, Ed here! Sorry I can't be there, I'm in New Zealand just doing a tour. Hope you have an amazing wedding. Drink a lot, dance a lot and have a lot of sex."

The move comes just days after Sheeran reached out to cancer-striken fan Jess Wright and visited her in hospital after she missed his concert in New Zealand because she was too sick to attend.
