The horse and carriage was waiting outside the hospital

A 4-year-old cancer patient celebrated the end of radiation treatment in style Wednesday.

Ella Phillips-Shimovetz found a horse-drawn carriage ride waiting for her as she left the children's hospital in West Chester, Ohio.

Ella has just finished a 28-day cycle of radiation to treat a cancerous tumor in her biliary tract.

The disease is being treated via proton therapy -- which specifically targets the tumor.

Ella is also undergoing chemotherapy through next spring to help ensure the cancer stays away.
