Cayucos woman gets her ‘Ellen’ show wish

Jodi Fisher, the Cayucos woman who made headlines last week when she met President Obama, will be featured on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” today.

Fisher, who is battling inoperable cancer, made a bucket list with her family that included meeting the president and going on DeGeneres’ show.

Fisher’s story became public when she handed out free treats from an ice cream truck in her hometown of Cayucos to celebrate her 44th birthday as a way of giving back to the community.

Four days later, she was invited to meet — and hug — President Barack Obama in San Francisco. That same week, a staff member from “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” contacted her about the possibility of coming on the show.

Fisher was there Wednesday with her family at her side taping the show, which will run today at 4 p.m. on KSBY, Channel 6.
