Watch Ellen surprise this 11-year-old cancer survivor.

Four years ago, Veronica Avila was diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer, osteosarcoma. She entered into an aggressive course of treatment for a year, and kept her spirits up by watching Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show.

Now 11 years old, Veronica was honored for her amazing spirit by a cancer foundation, and she made a video inviting Ellen to be her date for the evening. To Veronica’s surprise, Ellen showed up to the event with a gift basket, as well as tickets to come to her show.

Watch Veronica appear on the show that gave her strength and helped fortify her positive spirit, and see what else Ellen gave the courageous survivor…
