With the help of Disney and the Make-A-Wish Foundation, a 17-year-old girl named Izzy got the chance to fulfill her dream of meeting the stars of Grey's Anatomy on the Hollywood set of the hit ABC medical drama.
During her time on the set, she got to rub elbows with Ellen Pompeo and Giacomo Gianniotti — no word yet on whether she got any vital MerLuca scoop — along with show stars James Pickens Jr., Chandra Wilson, Kelly McCreary, and Jaicy Elliot.

Izzy also got to "witness a spoiler" and direct a scene from the episode in production during her time on the set, along with trying out some of the costuming and props that might help prepare her for her real-life ambition of becoming a doctor some day.
Even without their medical licenses, it looks like the stars of Grey's Anatomy really can help in the healing process.
Of the event, Pompeo tweeted, "This was such a great day."
Grey's Anatomy airs Thursdays at 8/7c on ABC.
