The Backstreet Boys are refusing to meet with a 5-year-old Michigan girl suffering from leukemia, the Associated Press reports. Morgan Zalewski, who is receiving chemotherapy treatments, asked The Rainbow Connection, which seeks to fulfill the dreams of terminal or seriously ill children, to arrange a meeting with the band. The five-member pop group is performing in suburban Detroit this weekend. “We used every resource we possibly could” to arrange the meeting, said Patricia Flack, director of The Rainbow Connection. But Marcee Rondan, a spokeswoman for the group, said they get “thousands and thousands of requests” daily from organizations like The Rainbow Connection and can’t possibly grant them all. The little girl still plans to attend their concert at The Palace of Auburn Hills.
