LEXINGTON, Tenn.- One kid's wish in Lexington is finally coming true.

Aaron Elliot, 17, a special needs child from Lexington find out that he will make an appearance on "Wheel of Fortune."

Friends and family attended a get-together Friday night where it was announced Aaron's wish was granted, thanks to the Make-a-Wish Foundation.

Aaron's family said it has been a life-long dream for him because he is a huge fan of the show.

"Since he was three-years-old, he has been watching it, playing it 24 hours a day as long as he is awake. So for it actually to come true makes you kind of speechless," said Aaron's father, Brad Elliot.

The episode of "Wheel of Fortune" featuring Aaron will be taped next week. You can catch that episode on WBBJ-TV ABC 7 in just two weeks.
