Lopez was diagnosed with leukemia a year and a half ago.

She's finished chemotherapy and is currently undergoing several steroid treatments.

The Make-A-Wish foundation said they are hoping this takes her mind off of all treatments and doctor visits.

Lopez, along with her mom and dad, will take a limo to San Francisco this weekend where she will have a one on one with Yankovic himself.

"I chose Weird Al as my wish because me and my mom have been listening to him since before I was born," said Lopez.

Lopez also received a special recognition from the city and gifts from friends. Her favorite Yankovic song is "White and Nerdy".
