9-year-old Eliana of Santa Barbara suffers from a brain tumor and has been in and out of the hospital throughout her young life, but this week she’s getting a wish come true.

Since she was 6, Eliana has had a love of all things Paris when she saw a picture of the Eiffel Tower on the cover of a journal.

The Tri-Counties Make-A-Wish Foundation surprised Eliana and her family at an IHOP in Carpinteria by granting her wish to visit the City of Lights.

This morning, volunteer wish granters revealed that she’ll be flying to Paris on May 2 for her 10th birthday.

According to Make A Wish, her bedroom is decorated with all things Paris and her favorite sweet treats are Macarons.
