B98.5 Reason To Smile: Cancer Patients Fall In Love Years Later
This month Joel Alsup and Lindsey Wilkerson tied the knot at St. Judes Children's Hospital, the same place they met when they were patients there more than 25 years ago. Lindsey was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia when she was 10. Joel was diagnosed with osteosarcoma at age 7. They stayed friends through high school, but college inevitably separated them.
But it was St. Jude's that brought them back together again as both would end up working at the children's hospital that saved their lives many years ago. Lindsey ran into Joel on her first day of work and they renewed the love they had a kids. We wish them both a long and happy life together.
