Joel Alsup and Lindsey Wilkerson Alsup met 25 years ago at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee.

At the time, 7-year-old Joel was fighting osteosarcoma, a bone cancer that caused a tumor in his right arm. Ten-year-old Lindsey had been diagnosed with acute leukemia.

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.
