RESTON, VA (WTTG/FOX) - A little girl battling brain cancer found out she would get her wish on the last day of her chemotherapy treatments.

Tara Sankner has been fighting astrocytoma, a type of brain cancer, most of her life. But she will head off to Hawaii to swim with dolphins at the end of July.

The Make-A-Wish foundation threw a party to celebrate her upcoming trip.

"I'm very, very excited for my trip," Tara said. "And I get to go see the dolphins and have a tour with the trained dolphins and have another tour with the wild dolphins."
