SALT LAKE CITY – A young fan got the surprise of a lifetime when Justin Bieber visited her in the hospital on Saturday evening.

KSTU reports that seven-year-old Millie Flamm had tickets to see her Bieber, her favorite musician, at his Salt Lake City concert on Saturday night.

But when she relapsed and had to be hospitalized for leukemia for the third time, she was unable to attend.

A group of mothers took to social media and reached out to Bieber on Facebook and Twitter to get the star to visit Millie at Primary Children’s Hospital before his concert on Saturday.

Millie’s family wasn’t sure whether Justin would make the visit – or even see their petition – and Millie had no idea about their attempts.

KSTU reports that Justin pulled through, paying a visit to Millie Saturday evening, even delaying his concert a bit to see her.
