Sick Leave Defining Family

In this March 2, 2018 photo, Yee Won Chong and Avalon LaFrance, 5, watch Brooks Nelson slice strawberries for a fruit salad in the kitchen of Nelson's home in Portland, Ore. Chong rents a room from Nelson and his partner, Jeannie LaFrance. When Chong was diagnosed with cancer, Nelson used his own sick days as Chong's "chosen family" to take time off to accompany Chong to doctor’s appointments. (AP Photo/Gillian Flaccus)
