Ed Sheeran uses Instagram to help 7-year-old girl find stem cell donor


Ed Sheeran has taken to Instagram in a life-saving bid to help a seven-year-old girl find a blood stem cell donor.

Despite his on-off relationship with Twitter in the wake of the mixed reactions to his ‘Game Of Thrones’ cameo, Sheeran remains active on Instagram – and has used the platform to attempt to help young Jasmi Cook, who is in need of a bone marrow match.

“Seven-year-old Jasmi urgently needs a blood stem cell donor,” wrote Sheeran. “There is a worldwide search and we urge you to join the register. It’s free! It’s easy! A simple cheek swab and you might be able to save a life”



To help or for more information, use the hashtag #JoinForJasmi or visit DKMS – the website that helps finds matches and donors for those in need.

Meanwhile, Sheeran has also been confirmed to make a cameo appearance in an upcoming episode of ‘The Simpsons’, and has also been named as one of the highest grossing touring acts of 2017 so far.
