The thanks continue as Nurse Appreciation Week draws to a close.

Dixie-Ann Amoroso-Pugh of East Flatbush is a nurse at the New York Proton Center, a targeted cancer treatment facility.

She tells News 12 that due to the coronavirus pandemic, some patients have been unable to involve their families during treatments, so makes sure she is in touch with patients.

She says she treasures all the love she receives this week.

“It was really an experience to see the smile and show that you were valued, even if it was just about cookies getting together and taking pictures. Just realizing that we can be together as nurses was spectacular for us Said Amoroso-Pugh.
