Ellen: Royal Caribbean Family Surprise
Melissa wrote in to Ellen asking for tickets so that she and her parents, Kathy and Bo, could come see her show. She told Ellen that her show is the happiest hour of her day. She has taught Melissa how to make a difference and live a happy life.
The last year has been rough for Melissa and her family. Bo was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer last April and then found out that it was a rarer type that only one in 20,000 get called “Good Guy Cancer.” The doctors told him you get it from being unlucky. Before his diagnosis, Bo had been healthier than ever. He played, and still plays, tennis two to four times a week. He told Ellen he never gets sick. Melissa said her dad has taught her to live life well.
Kathy wanted to take the family on a trip. She booked an expensive Royal Caribbean cruise and took money out of their retirement for it. Ellen talked to the cruise line and they agreed to bump the family to VIP treatment and pay for the entire family. The money can go back into their 401K to pay for other things.
