Justin Bieber suprised 6-year-old cancer patient Avalanna Routh on Monday, Feb. 13, and called her Mrs. Bieber.

At 9 months old, Routh was diagnosed with a rare brain cancer called AT/RT and has undergone many surgeries over the course of her life.

The two spent some time taking photos, she styled his hair, they ate candy and even had a pretend wedding.

Yesterday, after the meeting, Bieber tweeted about their time together: "hangin out with a special little girl. #MrsBieber"

"that was one of the best things i have ever done. she was AWESOME! Feeling really inspired now! #MrsBieber"

"got some really great ideas from today. ways to #giveback - #MrsBieber really inspired me. really"

And then he posted the photo of him giving her a big peck on the cheek, and said, "BEST PART OF MY DAY."

After her special Bieber day, Roth went onto the WEEI/NESN radio station in Boston and talked about the pop star.
