We dare you not to cry after reading this.

At his Oct. 30 concert in Glasgow, Scotland, British pop sensation Ed Sheeran met Katie Papworth, a 19-year-old fan who has been battling an aggressive form of brain cancer for eight years and recently lost her eyesight.

Backstage, Papworth presented Sheeran, 23, with an engagement ring, which he accepted.

Sheeran also signed a picture she drew for him. "Katie, lovely to finally meet my wife," he wrote on the drawing.

The Les Hoey MBE DreamMaker Foundation, an organization working to help children dealing with life-threatening illnesses, orchestrated the meeting and later thanked Sheeran on Facebook, posting a photo of the singer with Papworth, her mom and her caregiver.
