A 6-year-old girl who has a rare and aggressive form of brain cancer has a wish: she wants to meet Justin Bieber.
Avalanna Routh's form of cancer is called AT/RT and only about 30 new cases are diagnosed in the United States each year. Currently, there is no treatment for this type of cancer.
The Merrimac native was diagnosed with a brain tumor when she was just eight months old.
According to the "Get Avalanna to meet Justin Bieber" Facebook page, she had a wonderful pretend wedding to Mr. Bieber at The Jimmy Fund last year.
Family and friends are asking people to " Like" her Facebook page and help spread the word about Avalanna's big wish to meet Justin.
