An Agent and a young patient inspire each other

It takes some people their entire lives to learn how to live in the moment.

But at just 16 years old, Christian was a master at it. Cancer will do that to a teenager. Christian’s ability to find humor in the toughest times made him an instant friend with Geek Squad Agent Elliot Nelson.

The pair met while Christian was being treated at Children’s Minnesota in Minneapolis. Agent Nelson works at the philanthropic Geek Squad Precinct inside the hospital.

Their shared passion for video games and laughs is a reminder that friends can make even the most painful moments a little less so.
