Justin Bieber visits cancer patient in hospital

The Baby hitmaker surprised 18-year-old patient Crystal Amber Montgomery at the Cross Cancer Institute in Edmonton before his show in the city that night.

Bieber spent time with Montgomery in the facility and posted a picture of the pair on his Twitter.com page. Earlier in the day, he had written, "Now off to do something that matters."

The star's visit came after his fan's friend Joana Antunes posted an open letter to the star on Facebook.com over the weekend (13-14Oct12), urging him to take time out of his busy schedule to meet Montgomery.

She wrote, "It would mean the world to Crystal if you stopped even five minutes to see her, since she is too sick to leave the hospital and attend the concert like her and I had originally planned."
