Make-a-Wish Foundation grants wish for 12-year-old fighting cystic fibrosis

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A little girl's dream helped provide an escape from the doctors and treatments she faces daily. On Friday the Make-A-Wish foundation made Megan Albert's dream come true.

The 12-year-old Louisville girl is fighting cystic fibrosis. 

Megan has dreamed of becoming a mermaid, ever since seeing Mermaid Tales. On Friday, she got a mermaid tail of her own, and also learned she'll be going with her family to Atlantis Paradise Island.

Meagan's mother tells us the idea of enjoying sunshine and tropical waters often provides her daughter an escape from frequent hospital stays.

"She's been talking about getting the mermaid tail, of course, and applying for passports and getting to go and swim in the ocean, so she's really excited." 

Megan was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis when she was just 7-months-old, she turns 13 in January.
