She explained that the reason she was sharing the information was because there was someone in the audience who deserved a vacation. She’s a mother of two who is battling cancer and she wants to thank her daughters for being there with her every step of the way. Ellen wanted to help her do that by surprising them with a big vacation.
Ellen then welcomed Holly and her two daughters, Amanda and Alyssa, to come on down. Holly said she was doing great and her daughters said it’s hard to understand how hard it is to watch someone battle something so unpredictable and difficult. They said Holly beat breast cancer once and they are now going for round two with bone cancer.
