A social media campaign has launched in the southeastern Wisconsin area to get pop star Justin Bieber to come to Wauwatosa to visit a 4-year-old Waukesha County girl who was diagnosed with a rare brain cancer in August.
Hailey Roser, of Mukwonago, is a huge Bieber fan. Her parents have tickets, but she’s unable to attend the concert because of her illness.
So the plea to Bieber is going out on Facebook and Twitter in attempts to persuade the young celebrity to make a stop at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin in Wauwatosa to visit young Hailey.
“If she would be able to be in the same room as him and knowing that he came here to see her, I know would bring a huge smile to her face," her father, Eric Roser, told CBS 58.

Hailey was diagnosed with the severe, rare disease after it appeared she had the flu. Instead, an MRI changed her family’s life, according to a Healing Hailey Facebook page.
“This cancer is usually diagnosed in children with no known cause,” states the page. “Her family was devastated.”
Meanwhile, a benefit for Hailey is planned for this Sunday at the New Berlin Bowl from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., according to WTMJ-4. The price of tickets is $20 per person.
