Philadelphia Radio Host Mocked Phillies Fan Battling Cancer

By Ty Duffy

Ellen hosted 23-year-old New Jersey cancer patient Julie Kramer, in a segment about inspirational women. The diehard Phillies fan was greeted by Chase Utley carrying Phillies gear and received an invite to any game next season.

WHPT radio host Chris Stigall decided this was the opportune topic for a riff. He pointed out that Utley, the subject of trade rumors, may not be there to come through on the invite. He proceeded to point out that Kramer’s diagnosis was “probably terminal” and she may not live long enough through the season to take advantage of it.

Thanks for the heartfelt perspective, Chris. This situation cried out for a dump truck full of jaundice.
