Last week, my show lost a friend, 13-year-old Talia Joy Castellano. When I met Talia this season, I knew she was special, and I'm so glad that we got to share as much time as we did, but it wasn't enough. One of the things that inspired me most about Talia was her decision to "just keep swimming," and that's what I'm going to try to do.

This summer has been my biggest summer of giveaways yet, and you haven’t even heard, I’ve got the biggest prize coming! At the end of the summer, one viewer will win $25,000!

That’s a new car, or a down payment on a house, or 7 minutes at a blackjack table in Las Vegas, or any way you want to spend it. It’s entirely up to you.

Keep watching and make sure to enter here, and remember, always double down on a pair of aces.

I was really sad to have read that Talia passed.
when ever I saw her in your show I prayed for her and at the same time I thanks over and over for my family and friends health. If you have good health you have everything.

You are one amazing lady. You have changed to many lives and have brought hope to people hurting all over the globe. I was watching the day Talia was on your show and it made me cry, but feel great joy at the same time. I watched as you gave this young lady the greatest gift ever...her dream to be a cover girl. I cried as she showed so much joy and happiness over this. Talia was a very special little lady you inspired so many with her love of life and her fighting spirit. I love your show and hope one day to be able to meet you in person. your love of people shows in all that you do...

My inspiration is the people I work with and my grandchildren. So many people need help with the smallest things, and they really seem to appreciate it.

I would love to help me kids, the employment in our area has gone overseas, there area lot of people using plastic to get by. and getting deeper in debt. Helping my kids out would be a great blessing. Ellen I never miss your show, and me husband watches now. God Bless you, in all of the good you do for people.

This isn't for me!! ! I commented a couple of weeks about a 1 yr. old with leukemia. Sanders Moffit. I've never met the little guy, but I know his dad. Hunter Moffit went to school with my son. The little boy has since been I. Remission!!!!! BUT has been in the hospital for I think 3 weeks again. I get updates on Facebook and Hunters sister tells me about him. The amount of money they need for all this is astronomical. He has to have chemo for 3 more years. I know they rent a house and don't let his sister come visit because they are embarrassed!! Just parking alone at the hospital is horrible and with only one income and dr. Bills along with everything else. My heart foes out to them. Please take time to consider Hunter and his little family!!!!!! JoAnn Smith
