As a group of carolers paraded through the Nebraska Medical Center on Tuesday, 2-year-old John Yost waved and clapped and smiled so big the grin reached his eyes.
John is receiving chemotherapy for leukemia. Listening to a live rendition of “Jingle Bells” is more fun, though. He loves music, said his dad, Kirk Yost. So much so that it's part of John's treatment.
