OSHKOSH, Wis. -- A UW Oshkosh student who became a social media sensation for her campaign to meet pop star Justin Bieber has lost her battle with cancer.

Aly Wolff died at home in McFarland, Wisconsin Monday.

Friends of Aly started the push to meet her favorite singer with a Facebook, Twitter and Youtube effort #BiebsMeetAly. The campaign went viral and Aly eventually met Justin Bieber at a concert in Chicago last December.

Aly suffered from a rare form of liver cancer called Neuroendoctrine Cancer.

There is a memorial run planned for Aly. Click here for information.
