Grace Eline was a special guest of President Trump and the first lady's at Trump's second speech to Congress, and was recognized before the crowd of lawmakers.
Eilne was diagnosed in May of 2018 with Germinoma, a germ-cell brain tumor, and recently completed her chemotherapy treatment.
"It was really cool cause he's the president," she said Wednesday of her experience. "And for him to just talk about me, that's like pretty cool."
Eline also said that she hadn't fully watched a State of the Union address before attending Tuesday's speech.
She added that it was "amazing" that Trump urged Congress to support a $500 million increase in funding for childhood cancer research.
"It makes me feel really good that people would just take their time and try and help more people," she said. "I think that that's pretty amazing."
