CITRUS HEIGHTS --

A local girl suffering from type one diabetes will have one of her dreams come true on Friday, when she will go behind the scenes of her favorite TV show.

"I'm more excited than I've ever been," Emmy Reeves said.

Reeves said she was allergic to all but one type of insulin, which made treating her disease rather difficult. Her mother Tiffany Reeves said it took between 10 to 12 shots, or a continuous pump of the one type of insulin her body responds to just to keep her daughter alive.

"She went through immune suppressant therapy last year and that was rough because she couldn't be around animals," Tiffany said.

"We thought, ok, we would like to bring our dogs over and say 'Hi' as a surprise," Lieutenant Jason Russo said.

The Citrus Heights Police Department brought their K9 unit to the Reeves' family home on Thursday, to send Emmy and her family off on their trip.

Emmy and her family will travel to Los Angeles Friday to get a behind the scenes look of SyFy's makeup competition "Face Off". The trip was arranged by The Kids Wish Network, a charity that grants wishes for kids living with life altering circumstances.
