Bonding Over Talk of Cancer
Clifton Hon, a senior security officer at Cincinnati Children's, crossed paths with Amy Elam, who works at the hospital with patient families, each night when she passed his security booth on the way to her car. They always had a smile or a greeting, but they bonded over talk of cancer. Hon noticed the bracelet Elam wears for her daughter, who has been battling cancer for nearly a decade. Hon himself is in his fourth year of overcoming colon cancer. Their casual conversations turned into real support. They forged a friendship and found a way to help each other through the ups and downs of cancer. The two talk about their journey in this "Tell Me a Story."
