<P><a href="http://www.mtv.com/music/artist/bieber_justin/artist.jhtml">Justin Bieber</a> spent the day before Valentine's Day with a special girl. No, he wasn't with his lady love, Selena Gomez &#8212; instead he visited Monday with a 6-year-old Belieber, Avalanna Routh, who is suffering from an aggressive form of cancer. In a photo posted to his <a href="https://twitter.com/#!/justinbieber" target="_blank">Twitter account</a>, Bieber is seen hanging out with the young fan, dubbed "Mrs. Bieber." And the experience seems to have really affected him. "Hangin out with a special little girl. #MrsBieber," he tweeted about the meeting. "That was one of the best things i have ever done. She was AWESOME! Feeling really inspired now! #MrsBieber." <object width="420" height="245" id="msnbc51c8a7" classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=10,0,0,0"><param name="movie" value="http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/32545640" /><param name="FlashVars" value="launch=46379783&amp;width=420&amp;height=245" /><param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always" /><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true" /><param name="wmode" value="transparent" /><embed name="msnbc51c8a7" src="http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/32545640" width="420" height="245" FlashVars="launch=46379783&amp;width=420&amp;height=245" allowscriptaccess="always" allowFullScreen="true" wmode="transparent" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/download.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash"></embed></object> Avalanna's dream came true after her family started a Facebook campaign for her to meet Bieber, which, along with her pretend marriage to the teen superstar, was reported by a Boston-area news outlet. When the always-charitable Bieber caught wind of the marriage and her family's efforts, the <a href="http://video.today.msnbc.msn.com/today/46379783#46379783" target="_blank">"Today" show</a> reports, he flew Avalanna and her family to New York. The 6-year-old, whose "marriage" to Bieber was orchestrated by the charity the Jimmy Fund, has had an incredibly rare form of cancer called AT/RT since she was a baby. </p><div class="player-placeholder right" id="vid:712657" width="240" height="211"></div><p> "Got some really great ideas from today. ways to #giveback. #MrsBieber really inspired me. Really," he said, adding, "BEST PART OF MY DAY." Bieber is involved with several charities through his <a href="/news/articles/1673555/justin-bieber-believe-charity-drive.jhtml"><i>Believe</i> charity drive</a>, including <a href="/news/articles/1674628/justin-bieber-new-york-city.jhtml">Pencils of Promise</a>, the organization started by Adam Braun, brother of his manager Scooter, that builds schools for children around the world. The pop star also made headlines recently when he tweeted about a fan who needed an <a href="/news/articles/1677905/justin-bieber-organ-donor.jhtml">organ donation</a>, skyrocketing registrations at the Trillium Gift of Life Network donor bank in Ontario, Canada.</p>
