Everybody loves a feel-good story. We here at PST are no different, especially when there’s a soccer tie-in that makes it of special interest to our readers.

Courtney Wagner is a 15-year-old girl battling brain cancer. She’s also a huge fan of the U.S. women’s national team. So when she appeared on The Ellen Show (above video), she was in for a real surprise when the entire team made an appearance on location in Portugal and sent Courtney a special care package of USWNT-related gifts and goodies.

Well done to all the ladies involved.
