Justin Bieber Makes Wish Reality For Fan With Down Syndrome


Text Size  A  A

An 8-year-old with Down syndrome got to live out her dream, scoring a meeting with pop star Justin Bieber.

Marisa Cox has Down syndrome and recently underwent a kidney transplant. During her many hospital stays, her mother told FOX5 San Diego that watching videos of Bieber and listening to his music appeared to speed the girl’s recovery.

It was Cox’s wish to meet the pop singer and touch his hand, her mother said.

Saturday night that dream became reality when Cox met Bieber before his concert at the Valley View Casino Center in San Diego.

The meeting appeared to touch Bieber as well as his young fan.

“One of the best parts of the job. Nice meeting you Marisa. Stay strong for me!” Bieber tweeted, along with a photo of Cox planting a kiss on his cheek.
