The 45-year-old actress wrote a note to devastated fans on Twitter.
“I have always said what keeps me going is the fans. Knowing we move you and inspire you. There are so many people out there who have suffered tremendous loss and tragedy. Husbands and wives of soldiers, victims of senseless violence and parents who have lost children,” Ellen wrote in the note. “People who get up each day and do what feels like is the impossible. So it it for these people and in the spirit of resilience I am honored And excited to tell the story of how Meredith goes on in the face of what feels like the impossible. I hope you will all join me on her journey. With gratitude and respect, Ellen.”
