Annie Lowan, 11-Year-Old With Cystic Fibrosis, Lives Her Dream Of Dancing With Prince Charming (VIDEO)

Cinderella said it herself: "If you keep on believing, the dream that you wish will come true."

That's not the only way the classic Disney tale parallels Annie Lowan's story. The 11-year-old, who has autism and was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis as a newborn, wished more than anything to dance with a real prince charming, according to ABC. And just like Cinderella, her dream came true.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation arranged a special dance with Italian prince Lorenzo Borghese.

"It makes you want to cry," Annie's father, Daniel Lowan, told ABC. "You're used to seeing the other side of it," he said, referring to his daughter's multiple hospital visits and interrupted childhood.

Last month, Make-A-Wish turned San Francisco into Gotham City so 5-year-old cancer survivor Miles Scott could become Batman for a day.

Watch Annie dance with her prince charming in the video above.
