Every day, a two-year-old and her mother look out of the hospital room window to catch a glimpse of the creation scene across the street.

In contrast to the gray medical gear stacked in their room, the view outside is a constant display of cranes and trucks, and people in brightly colored hard hats as construction workers continue to erect a new building.

Vivian Keith and her mom loved to start their mornings by waving at the construction workers, and, of course, the men happily wave back.Roof volunteers Facebook David Perez

As the building climbed higher and higher, ironworkers Travis Barnes and Greg Combs saw a lot of kids at the Saint Louis, Missouri, children’s hospital watching from the windows, but Vivian was special — waving to the little girl with leukemia became part of their morning routine.

One day, the Keith family looked out the window to see a message from Barnes and Combs to Vivian scrawled on one of the girders.
