Avalanna Routh, the little girl who captured the hearts of Justin Bieber, doctors and thousands of people who met her died today from brain cancer. The 6yr old girl, known as ‘Mrs Bieber’ because of her great love for the pop star struggled with a rare and incurable cancer called AT/RT.
“Our darling Avalanna went to Heaven this morning,” her family wrote on Twitter. “Oh Avalanna, the brightest star – you took our hearts with you, our greatest love.”
Justin Bieber learned about Avalanna after her family started a “Get Avalanna to Meet Justin Bieber” campaign on Facebook and Twitter, using the hashtag, #MrsBieber. The singer eventually met the sick girl who was diagnosed with cancer when she was 18 months old, and stayed friends with her until her passing today. RIP Ava!
