From NBC affiliate WTMJ in Milwaukee:

MILWAUKEE- A little girl with a big health battle is hoping for a dream to come true this weekend.

Hailey Roser is fighting a rare disease and would love to have Justin Bieber stop by.

Bieber will perform at the Bradley Center Sunday night. But four-year-old Hailey Roser won't be in the crowd, she'll be in her hospital bed as she battles brain cancer. Hailey has been through so much and her family is hoping a visit from Justin Bieber will be just what she needs.

Hailey Roser is a big Bieber fan. His songs are helping her make it through more than most adults could bear. Hailey was diagnosed with AT/RT, a rare form of brain cancer.

Her father tells TODAY'S TMJ4 they had no warning anything was wrong.

"She got sick on a Tuesday, and we found out about it that Friday. How long it was there, we don't know," says Eric Roser.

The four-year-old fashionista has had half a dozen surgeries, and her family says they just have to take her prognosis day-by-day. Somehow Hailey's focus is on having fun. Her sweet spirit is what's inspired a social media blitz to bring Justin Bieber to her when he's in town this weekend.

"I guess my wish as a parent is to do anything that's going to make her happy, and right now there's not a lot of things that can do that," says Eric Roser.

Facebook and Twitter are filled with pleas for the pop star to pop by, and make this little girl as happy as she makes everyone around her.

There's a benefit for Hailey coming up this Sunday.

Here are the details:
