Justin Bieber Takes 10 Year-Old Cancer Patient to Awards Show

Justin Bieber made one lucky fan’s dreams come true Sunday night in Los Angeles when he took her as his date to the Young Hollywood Awards.

The 10 year-old Make-A-Wish recipient, who is battling cancer, took photos with the pop star on the red carpet and later joined Bieber onstage to accept the Champ of Charity Award, where he gave her a kiss and the award as she stood in front of the audience in shock.

The Awards show, which airs Monday night at 8/7c on The CW, also featured young stars Vanessa Hudgens, Chloe Moretz and host Kelly Osbourne.

Bieber, despite his bad-boy reputation in Hollywood, was being honored with the Champ of Charity Award for having granted a record 226 wishes through the Make-A-Wish foundation.

He spoke about this with Variety backstage at the Young Hollywood Awards.

Watch video:

Make-A-Wish president and CEO David Williams previously said of Bieber’s contribution:

“Despite his relentless schedule, Justin has been genuinely committed to granting wishes since the very beginning and a strong supporter of Make-A-Wish.”

“(He) understands the impact on a child of a wish-come-true and how it can create positive changes in their outlook, help them feel better — and even influence their health.”

Bieber later tweeted pics of the girl, Grace, on his Twitter and Instagram accounts.

This is what I live for

    Justin, with all the respect I can muster now, I must remind you that it takes more than a periodic show of compassion and generosity to be a real Canadian. Your constant arrogance and continued lack of respect for anyone outside your payroll world is nothing … I can only imagine what your life would be like where you didn’t feel you had to buy people to be a part of your life…yes, you have done well and have come a long way….too bad ya gotta crap on it!

    first reason to ever care about this spazz

    • Smooth. says:

      Spoken like someone that have never done anything but type negativity on the internet. Get lost loser.

      • Smooth. says:

        You’ve obviously never been involved in a large national touring show either, or you would know that a lot of things can caused you to be late other than attitude. Some things are out of your control, like traffic jams and accidents that are not your fault causing the trucks carrying equipment and sets to be held up on freeways. Venue not open on arrival so you can set up on time because of venue owners or employees being late with keys, etc.

        You also are not a professional entertainer or you would know to not criticize fellow performers because you may work with them or need a favor one day. What comes around, goes around. Snark is not a winning hand, just sayin’.

      • jdrakeca89 says:

        (smile) actually I’ve performed a lot in theatre and though its not a national stage and thousands of people at least I showed up on time and never held up a show for over 2 hours.
