Ellen surprises South Hero family again

Posted: Updated:

A Vermont woman fighting Breast Cancer was back on the Ellen show Monday

Trish Bessette of South Hero made a second appearance on the CBS show. In January Ellen heard about Trish's battle against cancer. The host was moved by her story and ended up having a TV crew surprise the mom outside her home, and invited her to come to a show taping in California.  
Monday Trish and her family were called down from the audience and treated to a video the show made in their honor.  Ellen also surprised the family with 10-thousand dollars.

Trish Bessette: My first mammogram since having the cancer was two days before Christmas and I found out the cancer was back, so we started this year just like we did last year, a couple surgeries. I just had surgery last Thursday.

Ellen DeGeneres: You're up walking around?

Trish Bessette: I'm seeing you, how could I not?

Bessette will soon be starting radiation for six and a half weeks.
