At age 6, Veronica underwent chemotherapy to battle a rare bone cancer she had been diagnosed with. And during that time, Ellen DeGeneres was her companion.

As she watched The Ellen DeGeneres show from hospital, she dreamed of one day meeting the TV host - and her dream came true this week.

But Ellen had an even bigger surprise for the now 11-year-old.

"Veronica is only 11 years old and she already took on cancer and won," Ellen wrote on Facebook. "I thought, I’m throwing her a victory party on my show."
