Yee Won Chong, Brooks Nelson

This November 2016 photo provided by Brooks Nelson shows Nelson, right, and his friend and renter, Yee Won Chong, left, pose for a photo as Chong prepared for surgery at Providence Portland Medical Center in Portland, Ore., to remove cancerous tissue. When Chong was diagnosed with cancer, Nelson used his own sick days as Chong's "chosen family" to take time off to care for Chong during chemotherapy and surgery. (Brooks Nelson via AP)
