Posted: Updated:

HILBERT (WKOW) -- A girl in Hilbert, Wisconsin loves to bake, and now she can bake whenever she wants thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

12-year-old Emily Koehler is battling an incurable form of thyroid cancer. After she got her tumors removed, the family was approached by the Make-A-Wish Foundation.  Emily's wish was to have her own bakery.

Em's Bakery was built in the basement of the home.  Emily's mom tells our ABC affiliate, WBAY, says baking helps Emily stay happy and not focus on her illness.
