We honor nurse Cecilia Ayala Rouijel. She's a RN at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center. Cecilia's younger sister Rachel at the age of 29 was diagnosed with breast cancer. Nobody in her family had cancer before so it came as a shock to everyone. It was very aggressive and she unfortunately passed away at 37. She left behind two children. Cecilia's sister and her grandmother who was diagnosed with Alzheimer's was her inspiration for becoming a nurse.
