At Calle Ocho News it is important for us to highlight members of the community that make a difference in peoples lives.  In this final edition of 2019, we want to thank Ashley B. Lopez of the Miami Cancer Institute. Ashley, congratulations on receiving The DAISY Award for extraordinary nurses that honors nurses Internationally in memory of J. Patrick Barnes.

“The true definition of caring is Ashley B. Lopez. There are countless examples of her heart, compassion, and love. The one that sticks out the most though was the day she organized a pizza party in the hospital for one of our young patients. It was the patient's birthday and we knew chances were, it was her last. Ashley rallied her troops and planned a bash in her honor. Who does that but a woman with an amazing heart!

MCI and BHSF health system are blessed to have an ARNP like Ashley in our system. It takes an extra person to do what she does and how she does it every day.”

On behalf of Miami and its residents we appreciate you for being an exemplary human being that shows compassion and does what you can to make sure that anyone under your care feels LOVE.

Thank you!
