The last time we wrote about 13-year-old cancer patient Talia Castellano, she was gaining a lot of attention with the amazing make-up video tutorials she posted online while also demonstrating beyond-her-years grace about her illness. So when she told her almost 200,000 YouTube subscribers that her dream was to meet Ellen Degeneres, the comedienne known for her niceness made that dream come true by inviting Talia to be a guest on The Ellen Degeneres Show.
But the aw-factor doesn't stop there. Ellen informed her guest that the people at CoverGirl decided to make Talia an honorary CoverGirl—Ellen is already one, herself. Talia's reaction at seeing her glam CoverGirl poster (around 1:50) is priceless!
Talia is an incredibly brave and inspirational girl, but there are many more kids living with pediatric cancer just like her. September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
