OSHKOSH - As Aly Wolff's sorority sisters at Gamma Phi Beta in Oshkosh hang purple balloons and banners in her memory, they say her spirit will never be forgotten.
"She never had anything bring her down, even through this entire time, she always had positive words of encouragement," said Kelsey Flanagan, UW-Oshkosh junior.
Flanagan and Emily Jung were in the same sorority pledge class with Wolff two years ago. Wolff was a business major at UW-Oshkosh until she was diagnosed with a form of liver cancer last spring.
"She really wanted to find a cure for that, because if she couldn't have a cure someone else should," said Jung, UW-Oshkosh sophomore.
While friends say Aly will no longer be with them physically, they say her memory will live on with them in their hearts and their actions.
"Everyone is going to take that to heart and remember her as a positive person who never took a day for granted," said Flanagan.
Wolff's friends started a social media campaign to get Wolff a chance to meet singer Justin Bieber. The hashtag #BiebsMeetAly traveled the globe and helped make that wish a reality at a concert in Chicago last December.
"Her two closest friends started it and it just took off, it was all around Oshkosh, all around the world," said Flanagan.
Wolff organized a run to raise money for cancer in May that friends and family plan to continue. Jung says that's a fight friends will carry on for Aly.
"She kept the same positive upbeat attitude. If anyone was ever negative she would always throw a little joke in there to try to make people smile, make people laugh and she was always doing something to help bring everyone together," said Jung.
A legacy that will live on in everyone who met her.
