Ed thought he was heading to Stamford Bridge to talk about his experience of cancer and share his story as part of the partnership between Stand Up To Cancer and Hyundai, which is also the Global Partner to Chelsea Football Club. Little did he know, he was in for a big surprise.
It’s always good to meet fans but I was especially excited to meet Ed today. He's been through a lot and at a very young age. And he's using his experience to help others and raise awareness of Stand Up To Cancer's work - he's selfless and an inspiration to us all. Seeing the look on his face was very pleasing. It was an honour to hear how Chelsea has been important to him over the years. I’m really happy he will be at the Bridge to watch us play Man U on Saturday.
As official partner to both Stand Up To Cancer and Chelsea, Hyundai will be supporting Stand Up To Cancer’s fundraising efforts by donating its match day rights for Saturday’s Chelsea fixture vs Manchester United at Stamford Bridge, encouraging fans to join in and help give cancer a kicking this autumn.
