Ellen DeGeneres Surprised A 15-Year-Old Cancer Survivor With Tickets To See Her Show

It's awesome to hear about celebrities making a difference when they can, especially in these difficult times that we're in.

15-year-old Coco Johnson went viral in March after her neighborhood threw her a welcome home party when she was finished her chemotherapy treatments.

Because of social distancing rules, the neighbors couldn't throw a traditional welcome home party, so instead they lined the streets for a parade while Coco's parents drove her home.

Coco recently appeared on *Ellen* to discuss her cancer treatment and viral video.

"I had to social distance throughout [treatment] because of my low blood count," Coco told Ellen. "So, in a way, it prepared me for this because at times when I wanted to see my family and friends I couldn't see my family and friends."

"A week after the video, I went back, and I got some scans and they were all clear. So, I'm cancer free," Coco updated.

Coco then told Ellen that she was a "huge fan" of the show and that she and her parents had actually applied for, and received tickets to, an episode of Ellen's show. Unfortunately, the show was for April 1st, which meant that they didn't get to go after all.

Ellen then surprised Coco by telling her that she and her parents would be receiving tickets from Ellen herself to see her show when they're back to filming with an audience.

"Not only are you coming back to see the show when we come back, but we're upgrading. You're going to come to one of the 12 Days of Giveaways shows. That would be a better show to come to," Ellen revealed.

Ellen also donated $25k to the children's hospital that Coco was treated at in her name.
