Celebrities have always reached out to children and adults that are huge fans. But unfortunately, some of those little fans have diseases and/or disorders that are life threatening.
Justin Bieber reached out to a tiny fan by the name of Avalanna Routh back in February and had his heart stolen immediately. Avalanna has a rare form of brain cancer. The cancer is AT/RT, atypical teratoid/rhabdoid tumor and it is extremely aggressive. But she fought and defied the cancer until Wednesday, September 27, when she passed away from complications of the disease, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Her parents, Justin Bieber and many other celebrities are distraught over hearing the news. She was nicknamed “Mrs. Bieber” after a meeting with Justin Bieber on Valentine’s day this year that answered her prayers. The two have been in touch ever since. Bieber tweeted on Wednesday:
“just got the worst news ever. one of the greatest spirits i have ever known is gone. please pray for her family and for her. RIP Avalanna. i love you.”
This is terrible news and our hearts go out to the Routh family! God bless you, Avalanna.
