Two people who fought one of life’s hardest battles together are now celebrating one of life’s most wonderful gifts: love.
Joel Alsup and Lindsey Wilkerson Alsup met 25 years ago at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee.
The pair became fast friends and comforted each other while undergoing months of treatment.
Fast forward several years: their bond became even stronger when they accepted positions at the hospital where they’d met.
Joel works in the American Lebanese Syrian Associated Charities communications department, while Lindsey works as a patient liaison assistant.
The couple exchanged vows on Sept.1, 2018, at the very place they say saved their lives.
