Dreams do come true just ask 13-year-old Talia Castellano. 

The youngster was initially diagnosed with stage 4 Neuroblastoma in 2007 and since then has had two relapses the most recent in August of 2010.  Instead of worrying about her fate Castellano decided to pursue her dream of being a make-up artist and presented her talents on her own YouTube Channel.

Another one of the brave youngster dreams was to meet her favorite star Ellen DeGeneres and do her make-up.  Well that dream also has come true for Talia. 

Check out the Orlando native’s visit to “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” where Ellen announced Talia was going to be an honorary CoverGirl and presented her with a $20,000 check and new makeup table.
