Childhood cancer survivors marry 25 years later

- A cancer diagnosis for two children had a very happy ending.

Joel and Lindsey Alsup were both children stricken with cancer in their childhood. They then met while being treated at Saint Jude Children's Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee.

Twenty-five years later, they got married in the very same place which saved their lives.

"I was finally brave enough to tell her that I liked her, not only that, I loved her. Luckily she felt the same way," Joel Alsup said.

"I could have never fathomed  that I would be sitting here today at his side as his wife, having the privilege to be married on the grounds of the place that saved our lives," Lindsey Alsup said.

September is national childhood cancer awareness month.
