In February 2015, a two-year-old girl named Vivian was diagnosed with childhood leukemia. She’s being treated at St. Louis Children’s Hospital. From day one, construction was taking place outside, directly across from Vivian’s hospital window. Vivian’s family watched their little girl become more and more fascinated with the construction site. She’d wave at the workers who spent their days on the beams and cranes. She even got her very own construction hat.
Eventually, two of the workers, Travis Barnes and Greg Combs noticed Vivian in the window. They started smiling and waving back to her, and Vivian was absolutely delighted. This sweet interaction went on for days as a special connection formed on either side of the glass. One day, Vivian’s mom, Ginger, noticed two of the workers trying to get her and her daughter’s attention.
When Ginger and Vivian looked out the hospital window, they saw a very special message spray-painted on one of the construction beams. In an awesome effort to cheer Vivian up, crew workers Greg and Travis did something so simple, yet so powerful, that it’s now going viral.
