POP superstar Ed Sheeran has lent his weight to support a young girl from Llanelli who requires a double lung and heart transplant.

Lilly Kendall, aged 10 from Llanelli has a rare condition which has meant that since the age of 10-days-old she has struggled with health issues.

Lilly collapses regularly under the strain of her illness and her family and medical experts at Great Ormond Street Hospital are working tirelessly to try an ensure that Lilly’s condition remains stable enough to undergo major operations required.

It is also hoped that organ donors can be found. This means that Lilly and her mum have to spend long periods away from home and the family travelling to London and staying over.

Lilly’s mother Cath said that apart from family and medical staff, who she says have been brilliant, they get very little support.

Llanelli Online launched a Just Giving page for Lilly and it is hoped that the target of £6,000 will be reached in order to provide some respite care and essentials for Lilly and her family during this period of uncertainty.

The pop superstar Ed Sheeran, upon finding out that Lilly was going to be attending his concert in Cardiff recently, sent a video message of support to Lilly.
