The family of an 8-year-old girl whose dying wish was to meet the hit boy band Big Time Rush completed her dream Saturday night when the boy band greeted them before their concert in Minneapolis, KARE 11 reports.

After hearing her story through social media, the band from the Nickelodeon TV show of the same name, was set to surprise Jane Fiemeyer of Wadena via Skype last September.

Unfortunately, the girl -- who was suffering from an aggressive form of leukemia -- died the morning of the scheduled visit.

Fiemeyer's family was able to meet the band after their Target Center concert after various connections helped secured backstage passes for the concert. The girl's wish finally came true when the Fiemeyer's sisters, Anna, 5, and Katie Rae, 7, and her mother, Jil, met the band.

Since it came near the one-year anniversary of Jane Fiemeyer's death, her mother, Jil Fiemeyer called the meeting "very emotional."

Still, Jil Fiemeyer told KARE, her late daughter "is very present in this moment" and meeting her idols "is her gift to us."
