My cousin Avalanna Routh met Senator Scott Brown today! Hopefully she told him a thing or two about pediatric cancer research.
Crying #PrayForAvalanna ♥
“Sometimes, it just hurts knowing I might not get to see her again.”
—Justin talking about Avalanna aka Mrs. Bieber
I would apologize for so many successive Avalanna/Justin Bieber posts, but nothing is more important to me than the health and happiness of my family. Avalanna deserves everything she has been given, but she also deserves so much more. She deserves a cure.
Please, please, if you can spare anything, even a dollar, consider donating it to www.cureatrt.org to help fight for a cure to this pervasive, devastating form of brain and spinal cancer.
And even if you cannot donate, please reblog this. It may just encourage others to help fight for a cure.
Even if you don’t like Justin Bieber, it’s not about that. This is about Avalanna Routh.
Avalanna Routh has ATRT (Atypical Teratoid Rhabdoid Tumors). These are fast growing tumors that form in the cerebellum (brain stem) and effect walking, talking, eating and hearing. Also, heartbeat, nerves and breathing. No cure has been found for this type of tumor. She isn’t estimated to live much longer. Avalanna’s dream was too meet Justin Bieber. Avalanna is 6 years old. Avalanna and Justin have something special. It’s not fan to popstar, it’s brother to sister. She’s met him 3 times since her life span estimation. The most recent time she met Justin, he asked her what her life’s dream was. She shyly answered
“To marry you.”
Justin gave Avalanna a little ring, and he said: “Take this,” as he handed it to her. “We just got engaged! You’re gonna be Mrs. Bieber” They told her she was ‘engaged’ to Justin, and he held her and gave her kisses. Justin loves Avalanna, and she means so much too him. On his ‘All Around The World: NBC Special’ they recorded Justin talking about Avalanna and he said:
“She means everything to me because she’s just so strong, and she’s uh, sorry I’m getting emotional but I just want everyone of you to just tonight say a little prayer for her.”
Regardless of all of that heart warming stuff, Justin and his team got word that Avalanna’s tumors are now affecting a larger part in her brain, and she is losing her ability to speak. They think it’s taking her faster than they expected.
You can donate to find a cure here. You can send Avalanna some love on Twitter: @Avalanna. She’s just a baby, please reblog to get the word out. This isn’t a ‘reblog if you have a heart’ posts. But, she deserves the right to live.
Please. Everybody. Donate if you can.
This is my cousin! With her second gif!
Everyone, please pray for Avalanna.
crumm-y asked: Your Avalanna's Cousin!?! OMFB Hi ! (:
Yes, Avalanna “Mrs. Bieber” Routh is my cousin. She was the little girl featured in Justin’s “All Around the World” special this week. She is an amazing and strong little girl who was diagnosed with brain and spinal cancer (AT/RT) at six months and who has braved and fought the odds ever since. To learn more about her, click here, and to help fight for a cure for AT/RT, click here.
Please, share this with your friends to help spread the word about Avalanna and the need for an AT/RT cure!
