Joel Alsup and Lindsey Wilkerson are both childhood cancer survivors. They’re in their late-30s now, but met 25 years ago while they were both being treated at St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee.
Lindsey had leukemia. Joel had bone cancer in his right arm, which eventually had to be amputated. But they both survived and now WORK at the hospital.
And earlier this month, they also got MARRIED at the hospital.
Joel asked Lindsey out after they started working together. And they got married at the hospital on September 1st, which was also the first day of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
Their wedding party was filled with more childhood cancer survivors. And they hope their story inspires other kids who are currently fighting the disease.
