Wishes do come true for Matthews girl

Alanna Bhargava, a 9-year-old from Matthews, had a wish come true Tuesday. Alanna has a life-threatening medical condition, and through the Make-A-Wish Foundation was given a room makeover courtesy of Broyhill Furniture. Since children with severe health issues often have to spend a lot of time indoors, Broyhill has teamed up with Make-A-Wish to give kids room makeovers. More than 400 wish kids wish for room makeovers each year. Alanna’s wish? A more grown-up look to her “little-girl room.” Alanna’s dream bedroom featured a new bedroom set, wall art, window coverings and bedding.
