Talia, from Orlando, has lost her battle with cancer at only 13 years old. She met Ellen last year when she was on her show. She became an honorary CoverGirl, & Ellen sent Talia to cover the iHeartRadio Music Festival.
This year I met a very special girl, and today we lost her. Sending my heart to Talia's family. I'm so sad.— Ellen DeGeneres (@TheEllenShow) July 16, 2013
Talia Castellano was the meaning of a true COVERGIRL. Please join me in sending love and honoring her memory. pic.twitter.com/apfwOQRw8e— COVERGIRL (@COVERGIRL) July 16, 2013
Here is the first time Ellen met Talia...
My thoughts and prayers are with Talia's family. She was truly inspiring!
