Little Girl Waves At Construction Workers Everyday. What They Do For Her? Tears.


A little girl sits pressed up against the cold glass of her hospital room window. She is only 3-years-old and inside of that room, she must be alone, for now. She is being treated with chemotherapy for her case of Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, and it requires that she remain, for the time being, in isolation.


Vivian Keith watches as outside of her hospital room the world remains in motion. In fact, the very hospital she is staying in, Barnes-Jewish St. Louis Children’s Hospital, is adding new construction, and every day she waves to the men doing the work. Those men wave back at all of the children they see in the windows, but somehow form a special bond with Vivian.

What they do for her? Unbelievable!
