Need a reason to smile? Look no further than Chase Utley.
Tabernacle, NJ's Julie Kramer is battling stage 4 synovial sarcoma at only 23. When Kramer's best buddies heard that Ellen DeGeneres was looking to interview inspiring women, they started #JulieMeetsEllen campaign that blew up on social media, landing Kramer a spot on today's show.
DeGeneres showed her support for Kramer, who got up and danced only hours after surgery, by giving the massive Phillies fan a check for $10,000 and lots of baseball swag, presented by the one and only Utley.
"Hey, Chase, bring it out will you?" DeGeneres said, surprising Kramer. "Shut up!" Kramer replied, adding to Utley. "You rule."
Besting the merch, Utley told Kramer she was welcome at any Phillies game next season, including a batting practice so she could meet a couple of the guys.
