Ironworker is writing name on a steel beam

Photographer: Alan Berner / The Seattle Times .

This ironworker is working on a new building, Building Hope, at Seattle Children’s hospital. He is painting Gillie-Jean on a steel beam. He wants to make Gillie-Jane happy. She is a patient at the hospital. She and other very sick children live on the cancer floor. They watch the workers every day. They want to see their names on the steel beams, too. They put signs in their windows. The ironworkers see the signs and paint the children’s names on the beams. Now more than 50 happy children see their names. Building Hope is good medicine for the sick children.
