Are You Ellen's Biggest Fan in Australia?
442 days ago

I am a fan of the Ellen Show, but regardless of how big a fan I am, I don't want to win a trip to the show. I would much rather see a young called Blake Henderson get to meet Ellen. Blake was just 17 years old when he was diagnosed with a bleed on the brain and inoperable brain cancer on Australia Day in 2010. Blake still has a tumour on his brain stem and has a constant threat of bleeds re-occurring. When he was at his worst with his medical condition, he spent many hours watching Ellen with him mum, Michelle. Despite having these serious medical issues, Blake is living a full life, volunteering for two different national soccer league teams, and has done considerable other volunteering over the years, both before and after his diagnosis. If Blake were my son, I would be so proud of how he is living his life to the utmost. I can't think of anyone more deserving of winning this than Blake Henderson and his mum Michelle.
