Ellen loves responding to her viewers, so today she answered another batch of mail. She weighed in on everything from the iPad to "American Idol" -- and was surprised to find out what Mama does at "Idol"!

Hello, Ellen. I know you are a busy woman, but I just wanted to say I am a big fan. I had seen one of your shows about a girl who had a double lung transplant. I thought she was an amazing young lady. I had a kidney transplant, in June 2013, and I am doing well. thanks to the support I have from my family. I really do not have friends. But my daughters are my friends. My fiancée is my best friend, and God. I am going to school to be a personal trainer for children. I think children do not have everything they need to know to stay fit, and our so called pe classes are horrible. I know Mrs. Obama is trying to fix that, but I think more should be done. Sorry, I could go on and on. I mainly wanted to say hello, to you, a wonderful person who truly cares about others. Thank you for just being you and not a fakie. I also live in Omaha, Ne and I am 41, but that has nothing to do with what I want to do for others. I will never let myself be limited. No matter what. your fan. Nicole.

Dear Ellen,

I love you! You are really such an amazing person. I have been a fan of yours for sooo long. I love your comedy hours, your sitcom, your books, and your show of course. I watch you all the time and you are the best to watch when anyone is experiencing difficult situations in life. Whenever I am upset about something, I know that as soon as I watch you, you will help me forget about whatever it is that is making me upset. Besides that you are probably the funniest person, you are such a loving and giving person. It seems to make you so happy to make others happy and that is definitely what makes me love you so much. I will never stop watching your great show and please keep writing! My goal is to come to California one day and come to your show. In the meantime, come visit us New Yorkers!

Ellen, Im hoping that you can help a co-worker of mine.We work at Goodwill Industries in Duluth. She has a Husband that is disabled, and three small kids. One of her kids is autistic and has seizures. My co-workers name is Laura. She bought a used car and was paying payments every month. Things kept going wrong with it. The last time she brought it in to the shop, she couldn't afford to pay for it. She told the mechanic to call the place that she got her car(van) at, to just come and reposess it. I just want to cry when I think about her. I would be so greatful if could help her and her Family.

Hello Ellen,
First time commenter, that could concentrate on the negative in my life but would love to instead share the positive. I grew up in a one parent home during times of not having friends, belittled by my teachers, but have always remained positive of a better life and outcome. I have gone thru highs and lows, but a smile is constantly there cause my mother always showed me love. She is an amazing woman who as always been at my side. She sacrificed a lot for me. After being laid off from two jobs going back to school and not having enough money to finish my course, she has been there. I love her so and if anything you want to shout back at please let it be her. She has been thru alot but I am sure being able to be there to see your show would make her a very happy woman and I want to be able to see that before she passes on.
Again this is not about me this is about her. I love her dearly and do not want her to pass before letting her know how much i care about her.

Hey Ellen! My name is Jennifer Romeo and I live in Brooklyn. I am a big fan of yours and I'm inspired by your life.You are very funny and I love to watch you dance lol. Let me get to my purpose of writing this letter. I got accepted to UCONN for Fall 2014. Things are not looking good for me financially. My parents are not able to contribute money to my education. My father just had a stroke, and therefore can't work. My mother is a CNA who only works three times a week . Her pay is low. They are having a difficult time supporting my brothers and me. Ever since my dad had the stroke, everything has gone down the drain. Trying to pay the light, water, cable, and gas bills, taking care of four kids, and trying to survive has been exhausting. Imagine me going away ! Things are going to be much harder for them. Although I will be applying for a job on campus, my pay will not be enough. In addition, I still have to pay $27,000 for my tuition. I really want to go to UCONN and graduate in four years with a bachelor's degree in Cognitive Science. I would like to become a neurosurgeon. I played basketball in highschool and also want to play for UCONN - which has the number 1 team right now. I really love basketball. I plan on applying for scholarships if I make the team, but it's not guaranteed . Ellen, can you please lend me a hand ? I really need as much support as i can get. I guarantee you, I will graduate college. I won't fail you, my parents, nor me. God will truly bless you.

Your fan/future Doctor
