Jimmy Fund patient and inspiration to all, Avalanna Routh, passed away on Wednesday. The 6-year-old suffered from a severe case of brain cancer.
Routh, the Merrimac, Mass., native, had a major impact on the Jimmy Fund community and influenced many with her bubbly personality. She got to see one of her dreams come true as she developed a close relationship with pop star Justin Bieber, and eventually became known as "Mrs. Bieber."
The youngster wasn't one to miss an opportunity to let her spirit shine, and you can see that in the video above.
Our condolences go out to Avalanna's family during this extremely difficult time.
The Routh family has been working to raise awareness and money for researching ATR brain tumors. You can make a gift to the Jimmy Fund in Avalanna’s honor by going to jimmyfund.org.
