MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Babalu is honoring a very special young lady with her own taco shop for a day.

Wednesday, Babalu in Overton Square was transformed into Vega's Taco Shop.

Vega, 9, has spent her entire life battling Cystic Fibrosis, a life-threatening disease.

To help Vega's family with some financial burdens, Babalu is giving $1 from every taco sold to the family on Wendesday.

Vega went to work in the kitchen, cooking up some tortillas, black beans, and more.

This isn't the first time the restaurant has opened its kitchen and changed its name for a child in need. In August 2015, Babalu became Eden's Taco Shop in honor of a sweet 4-year-old with leukemia.
