What an incredible story of a celebrity doing something that made a life long dream come true.
Six-year-old Ollie was diagnosed with a rare genetic illness called Battens disease two years ago. His parents launched the 'Ollie's Army Battling Against Battens' to help raise awareness and money to find a cure.
Well, Ollie also happens to be a HUGE fan of Ed Sheeran and his parents launched a campaign. Not sure if it would work they set their eyes on one goal... to get Ed to meet their son and it finally paid off!
The parents revealed, "As soon as Ed walked into the room yesterday and spoke, Ollie's eye lit up and a smile spread across his face. They added, "Ed is one of the loveliest guys we have ever met, he asked us to explain Batten Disease and Ollie's Army. He was truly saddened by our journey - To us last night Ollie wasn't meeting a star he was meeting HIS star, he was meeting the man that taught him the power and love of music."
As the true gent he is, Ed took time out to take selfies not just with Ollie but with the entire family. Mike and Lucy Carroll, captioned their photos with a truly heartwarming status: "As parents we can not thank Ed, his team and every single person who shared Ollie's video, and emailed Ed's management team enough. We never thought this would happen and through the power of social media it has."
