MILWAUKEE-- Two local girls who are battling cancer are hoping their dream will come true this weekend.

7-year-old Lauren Sharp of Kenosha and 4-year-old Hailey Charlotte Roser from East Troy want to meet Justin Bieber.

The pop star will be in town on Sunday for a concert at the BMO Harris Bradley center, and Lauren and Hailey hope he'll take the time to meet them.

"I think it would be life changing for them, something they would remember for the rest of their lives," said Molly Sharp, Lauren's mother.

Lauren has been battling Leukemia for a year. She's still undergoing treatment but her parents say she is doing a little better. That's why they were thrilled to find out Children's Hospital of Wisconsin is giving Lauren and other sick children the opportunity to go to the concert on Sunday.

Hailey's parents also got tickets, but won't be able to take their daughter to the concert.

Just two months ago, Hailey was diagnosed with brain cancer. They're hoping the pop star will surprise Hailey with a visit at the hospital.

"If she would be able to be in the same room as him and knowing that he came here to see her, I know would bring a huge smile to her face," said Eric Roser, Hailey's father.

While Bieber performs at the BMO Harris Bradley Center on Sunday, Hailey's parents will hold a fundraiser in New Berlin to help them cover medical costs and living expenses.
