The ironworkers of Local 7, who are constructing the Carl J. and Ruth Shapiro Cardiovascular Center, last week crafted a message from the bottom of their hearts on the highest pillars of the 70 Francis St. construction site. Their heartfelt message, “Stay Strong Lexi Skye. Love, Local 7,” gives hope and encouragement to nine-year-old Lexi Skye Alden, a cancer patient at Children’s Hospital.

Lexi told news reporters from the Boston Herald and WHDH Channel 7 that she is happy to have her name on a building that will help other patients. “I feel good about that,” she told Channel 7.
