Construction workers in St. Louis, Missouri have made an unlikely friend. Travis Barnes and Greg Combs have been hard at work as part of the campus renewal project for the Barnes-Jewish and St. Louis Children’s Hospital. The two ironworkers have become accustomed to children’s friendly waves from their hospital window. For two-and-half-year-old Vivian, the men waiving back at her is her link to the outside world and a carefree moment. The little girl is battling acute lymphoblastic leukaemia, a cancer that attacks the body’s white blood cells. Despite the chemotherapy and living in isolation in the ninth floor of the building, Vivian spends a lot of time looking out her window waiting for her friends to wave back. Except, one day Vivian and her mom Ginger Keith received more than just a wave from these tough looking men. Barnes and Combs may not be doctors but they are healers of the heart.
