Though we all like to make fun of Justin Bieber from time to time, the teen pop sensation proved once again that he’s not such a bad guy. The Biebs spent some time with a cancer-stricken super-fan backstage at a Milwaukee show, making the little girl’s dreams come true.
Bieber heard about 4-year-old Hailey Roser after her parents started an online campaign called Healing Hailey following her brain tumour diagnosis in August, reports Contact Music. The music superstar invited young Roser backstage to meet him at his sold-out Bradley Center arena show in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on Sunday.
The Healing Hailey campaign has collected almost $15,000 through Indiegogo in donations. One of the campaign’s followers dropped a line to TMZ about the girl and her adoration of Bieber. TMZ contacted Bieber’s manager, finally putting her on his radar.
Students at Holmen High School made a video for Hailey, hoping that Bieber would see it before his Milwaukee show, reports WXOW. Supporters flooded social media using the hashtag #JustinVisitHailey on Twitter.
Hailey’s mother bought two tickets to Justin Bieber’s Milwaukee show for her 5th birthday, though she said that the odds of her daughter making it to the show were slim. However, the Journal Sentinel reports that Hailey was given the go-ahead by her doctor on Sunday, and was transported to the arena on Sunday in an ambulance for a private five-minute meeting.
During the meeting, Hailey told Bieber that she loved him, and he thanked her for the opportunity to meet her.
Hailey Roser’s official Twitter, and that of Bieber himself and his manager, Scooter Braun, put up posts commemorating the young girl’s dream come true.

“It was just great to see her smile,” Hailey’s father, Eric Roser, said. “To give her something good to do finally after being [sick] for two months, it felt so good.”
