Avalanna Routh suffered with cancer for most of her short life; at just 18 months old, she was diagnosed with a rare and extremely agressive tumor which only responded to treatment for a short time. Hers was a life of pain and confusion, yet she was one of the brightest spots in the lives of those who met her, a tiny girl with a huge spirit.

While in the hospital last year for treatment, Avalanna’s nurses staged a “wedding” between her and her favorite musician, Justin Bieber, with a cardboard cutout to stand in for him. At just five years old, she became Mrs. Bieber and made national news with her story. The wedding attracted the attention of a very important person, as well: Bieber himself. The singer arranged to fly Avalanna and her parents to New York, where he hung out with her playing board games for an afternoon and then invited her to his concert, where he led her onto the stage. It was a high point for the little girl, but it was also a day Justin will never forget. As of this past summer, the two of them had still been keeping in touch via webcam.

“That was one of the best things i have ever done. She was AWESOME! Feeling really inspired now!” the singer tweeted after spending the day with Avalanna.

Sadly, Avalanna succumbed to the cancer on Wednesday, bringing an end to a short but full life. Upon hearing the news of her passing, Justin took to Twitter to show his support and love for her family and to ask for prayers from his followers.

      Justin you are a true gentleman and you were raised well. You have more of a heart than a lot of Hollywood adults. The next time there is a “snafu” in your life and the paparazzi exploits it, remember that you are only human, subject to mistakes, but at least you have a heart. God loves you even more for the happiness you gave that little girl in her last days. He has her now and taking better care of her than anyone else ever could. I thank you and God bless you and your continued success!!

I thought I might be your first mother-in-law( my 9 year old daughter Olivia has been head over heels for you for ever) but clearly little Avalana needed you more. God Bless you and God Bless dear Avalana!!! Stacie Potts, Johnstown,Pa.
