Ed Sheeran Donates His Guitar To Fund Fan’s Ovarian Cancer Treatment
One Ed-Sheeran’s fan who was diagnosed with aggressive ovarian cancer has revealed the singer donated his guitar to help fund treatment for a last-chance drug.
Actor Suzie Aries, 28, Hornchurch in Essex, who has been crowdfunding to pay for life-changing treatment for her rare type of ovarian cancer not available on the NHS, says that four cycles in and she is cancer-free for the longest time yet as reported by The Daily Mail.
She was however very surprised when her favourite artiste donated to her cause. She said:
I was absolutely flabbergasted and honoured that my favourite artiste, Ed Sheeran, would donate so generously to my cause and I would very much like to meet him one day to thank him in person.
Following three rounds of surgery, six cycles of chemotherapy, and a drug trial that stopped working, the performer was left with just one option an immunotherapy drug.
But as the cancer was so rare, the drug was not classified as a standard treatment and was not available on the NHS.
Suzie, who became resistant to standard chemotherapy and is being treated at The Royal Marsden, says the funding for the drug will take her through to November, giving her the best chance of keeping her rare form of ovarian cancer at bay.
Now, she raised awareness of the disease for Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month March, and says she is blown away by the response for the crowdfunding.
