• Future Storm Chaser Weathers Life with Blood Cancer

    There has been at least one person at Cincinnati Children's who hasn't minded the spring showers of 2011. From his room on the oncology ward, Eli Wilkening has been looking out the window, ready to chase some storms. The weather buff has caught the attention of "Tornado Alley" filmmaker Sean Casey and of doctors and nurses who stop in to get the weather update. The outlook for Eli is looking good. He is scheduled to finish his cancer treatments in August and put his bout with leukemia behind him. He will soon be back to playing in his cardboard "tornado interceptor" and looking forward to a few dark clouds overhead.
