Six-year-old Zaliyah Love Rodriguez was diagnosed in January 2018 with stage four rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare form of tissue cancer, when she caught her hand in a door. What was thought to be a simple injury revealed a tumor. Now in between Zaliyah's chemotherapy treatments, her family does everything they can to make special memories for her.

When radio host Joey Boy from Live 101.5 in Phoenix's Morning Mess heard that the little girl loved dolphins, he called in a special favor to his friends at Dolphinaris Arizona to introduce Zaliyah to her favorite animal -- and she even got to swim with the beautiful creatures.

In the video above, Zaliyah’s smile shows what it looks like when your dreams really do come true!
