Chase Utley surprises cancer patient on Ellen

Tuesday December 16th, 2014


Ellen DeGeneres had cancer patient Julie Kramer appear on her show on Monday and the talk show host arranged for Kramer to be surprised by her favorite baseball player Chase Utley.

In addition to surprising Kramer, the Phillies second baseman brought a box load of Phillies merchandise and an invitation for Kramer to come to batting practice and meet the team, and to stop by as many games as she would like.

Only one reporter showed up to Jay Cutler's press conference

Ellen also presented the 23-year-old with a check for $10,000 to help with the costs of her fight with synovial sarcoma.
