Their story started many years ago when they met as children at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Joel and Lindsey Alsup were both getting treatment for cancer at the time and they recently tied the knot at the very same hospital.
The couple said “I do” on September 1st, which happens to be the first day of National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, so they saw the hospital as the ideal venue for their nuptials. While getting treatment there as kids, Joel and Lindsey formed a friendship, having no idea it would one day turn into a romance. But several years later, they both started working at the hospital and eventually fell in love.
"I could have never fathomed that I would be sitting here today at his side as his wife,” Lindsey says, “having the privilege to be married on the grounds of the place that saved our lives.” Joel says "God used something horrible like cancer to set me up for an amazing life with an incredible wife".
