Ellen Degeneres - Ellen Degeneres Hands Cheque To Former Show Writer Battling Cancer

Comedienne Ellen Degeneres has shown her generosity by sending a $10,000 (£6,250) cheque to a former writer on her talk show who is battling cancer.
The employee was let go from The Ellen DeGeneres Show following the Hollywood writers strike, which began in November, 2007 and ran for 100 days, causing production on many TV programmes and films to shut down over a pay dispute.
However, the funnywoman recently decided to make amends with the axed worker when she learned he had been diagnosed with the potentially deadly disease and she mailed him a cheque to contribute towards his medical costs, according to the National Enquirer.
A source tells the tabloid, "This guy had been with her show since it started, but they had a falling out during the Hollywood writers' strike."
