(NEWSER) – A pair of ironworkers found a unique, heartwarming way to reach out to a little girl fighting cancer in isolation in the ninth floor of the St. Louis Children's Hospital, ABC News reports.

Two-year-old Vivian Keith, who was diagnosed with leukemia in February, has spent the months since then watching construction workers outside her window. Her mother, Ginger, tells KSDK that Vivian would wave at the workers as a way to help her forget about the chemotherapy. "She was waving at us and making faces," ironworker Greg Combs tells ABC. "She was sweet and made us smile. 

Last month, Combs and coworker Travis Barnes wrote "Get well soon" on a metal beam outside Vivian's window.
