“RIP Avalanna” has been trending worldwide on twitter all day for 6-year-old Avalanna Routh.

 

Routh, who called herself ‘Mrs. Bieber’ died from a rare brain cancer on Wednesday, according to her family, who announced the news in a tweet.   

 

Her love for Justin Bieber prompted hospital workers to organize a pretend wedding, which then led to a social media campaign to help her meet the pop star in person. Bieber later met the Massachusetts girl in New York, and tweeted that it was “inspiring”, and one of the best things he has ever done.

On Wednesday, the singer took to twitter again to remember Avalanna. Biebertweet2

Justin's tweets have caused Beliebers, and even fans of One Direction, known as "Directioners" to show their support.

Routh suffered from an atypical teratoid rhabdoid tumor. Only 30 new cases are diagnosed in the U.S. each year.
