A little girl battling with a rare brain cancer spent the afternoon of Valentine’s Day with her favourite singer, Justin Beiber.
Avalanna Routh, 6, and her family were flown out to New York to meet Justin after her family appealed to the star on Facebook.
Justin and Avalanna spent the afternoon playing board games, eating cupcakes and signing autographs. Justin even agreed they would get ‘married,’ making even more of Avalanna’s dreams come true.
“It was wonderful, just another fun moment,” said Avalanna’s mum Aileen.
When asked how long she’s loved her pop idol Justin, Avalanna said, “Seven year. No, 80 years.”
Avalanna wasn’t the only one smitten. After his special Valentine’s Day date, Justin took to Twitter and shared a heart-melting pic of him hugging his No.1 fan with the caption, “Best part of my day.”
“That was one of the best things I have ever done. She is AWESOME! Feeling really inspired now!” tweeted Justin.
Little Avalanna has been fighting with ATRT brain cancer and undergoing chemotherapy treatments since she was a baby. ATRT, or Atypical teratoid rhabdoid tumor, is a rare tumor that mostly affects children under 3 and is often found in the brain. The cancer is so rare, less than 30 new cases are diagnosed in the US each year.
