A brave young woman is able to live out her dream thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Kianny Figueroa-Velez is battling cancer and is getting potentially life-saving treatment at the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center.

On Monday the 18-year-old got a surprise of a lifetime when she learned the Make-A-Wish Foundation was flying her to Paris so she could immerse herself in the fashion world and escape her diagnoses for a week.

She is originally from Puerto Rico.
