Gisele Bundchen made one brave teen's day when the supermodel visited Karina Xavier on Thursday.

Xavier is battling cancer but isn't letting go of her dream of becoming a makeup artist.  Her blog, Chic By Karina, gives DIY makeup and fashion tips, and is a huge Internet hit.

The 15-year-old, who lives not far from Boston -- home of Bundchen and her New England Patriots star hubby, Tom Brady -- is also -- like Gisele -- of Brazilian descent.

The supermodel surprised Xavier with the visit.

"From the moment you surprised me, until the moment you left, I was so shocked for you being here with me.  You are a great person and you will continue inspiring me," Xavier wrote in sharing the news with her followers.

Bundchen was even more impressed.

"You are warrior, an inspiration of positivity and courage," she said of Xavier.
