Twelve-year-old Alaina Lopez has been treated at Children’s Hospital many times throughout her childhood, but there is one thing she does not want to be cured of… Bieber Fever.
Pronounced “BEE-ber FEE-ver”
Definition: A phenomenon of swooning tween and teenage girls over 17-year-old pop star Justin Bieber.
Alaina is a spunky, active, responsible, teen-heart-throb-loving seventh grader from Fountain City, Tenn. In July 2008, Alaina’s pediatrician recognized that she was self-conscious and above the healthy weight for her age/height, so he referred her to the Healthy Ways Clinic at Children’s Hospital.
