CUMMING — The Aflac Cancer and Blood Disorders Center of Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta recently honored a nurse from Cumming.

Sara Bashor received the Laura Snitzer-Boozer Nursing Award, which honors nurses who have demonstrated professional excellence and leadership in pediatric cancer care and provides financial support for continued education in the field of oncology.

The award is given in memory of Laura Snitzer-Boozer, an Aflac Cancer Center nurse who died from a brain aneurysm in 1999.

In a statement, Bashor described being a part of Aflac Cancer Center inpatient unit as “more than I could have ever expected."

"I work with top-notch nurses who share a true passion for our patient population, and I'm truly blessed to be recognized by them,” she said.

As a registered nurse, Bashor has provided care within the inpatient unit of the Aflac Cancer Center for more than five years.

She received her bachelor of science in nursing from Brenau University and lives in Cumming with her husband and two daughters.
