ATLANTA -- Make-A-Wish Georgia wants to make dreams come true.

They're often expensive dreams from little boys and girls struggling with life-threatening illnesses.

In fact, more than 700 children in Georgia are on Make-A-Wish Georgia's lengthy list of children waiting for their wishes to be granted.

One Atlanta 9-year-old, Ellie Tavani, who recently saw her wish come true, is sharing her story with 11Alive while hoping to inspire others.
