Gisele Bundchen surprised a lucky teen the day after Christmas by showing up at her house unexpectedly. Bundchen made a visit to Karina Moreira on Thursday, according to People on Dec. 30.

Moreira was in her room when Bundchen appeared at her bedroom door. The teen says she did not scream, she simply hugged Bundchen. Moreira was getting ready to go to the hospital when Bundchen showed up for a visit.

Bundchen brought Moreira beauty products and they proceeded to do each other’s makeup.

Moreira is a 15-year-old Boston teen who currently has bone cancer. The teen moved with her family to America from Brazil when she was 3. Moreira has been in remission since the summer of 2012, when she osteosarcoma returned behind her knee and lung in November. Moreira is currently receiving treatment at Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston.

Karina Moreira met Gisele Bundchen at a Jimmy Fund event. The surprise visit was arranged by Moreira’s mom, Daniele, and Bundchen’s sister, Patricia, through social media. Even though Moreira is currently undergoing treatment, she still finds the time to maintain her makeup blog Chic by Karina.
