The Power of Positive Thinking

When he was diagnosed with cancer of the small intestine, Jon McAlprin believed it was terminal. His doctor encouraged him to stay positive. Then Jon met "Barnum & Bailey," a couple of infectiously happy greeters at Estabrook Cancer Center in Omaha. Jon was so taken with their ability to make people feel good that when he learned of a greeter position opening, he applied. Jon not only got the job, he believes it's one he was born to do.
