(March 20, 2015) – It’s a sad day for Glee fans. The hit Fox show wrapped up Friday night after six seasons. The musical comedy-drama focused on the fictitious William Mckinley High School glee club. The series was created by Hoosier native Ryan Murphy, and tonight a Hoosier got a big surprise from a Glee cast member.

Madison Hoffman, 19, has been watching Glee from the beginning. She fell in love with the characters and their story lines, and her room is even covered in pictures from the show. Madison is also battling cancer, so FOX59 News wanted to do something very special for her.  While watching the final episode with her friends and family, Glee cast member Dot Jones, who plays football coach Shannon Beiste, personally called Madison to let her know the Glee cast supports her.

Madison’s mother Melissa Hoffman told FOX59, “Glee has always been Madison's happy place. I was so overwhelmed by how Dot has tried to continue a relationship with Madison, a friendship.”

The college student was diagnosed with Stage 2 Hodgkin's lymphoma last year. Madison is home from the University of Iowa for spring break this week. And the good news didn't stop for Madison-- she found out, her cancer is in remission.

“You may think it is the hardest thing possible, but you have to take it one day at a time,” said Madison.
