Nursing Heroes

When disaster strikes, heroes emerge. Nurses do great things every day. MENCHU DELUNA SANCHEZ, a Filipino registered nurse in NYU-Langone, organized a group of medical professionals to carry 20 critical babies down nine flights of stairs, with illuminations from cellphones to guide their way.

As part of their daily lives, they care for their patients under-paid and under-staffed. But in extreme circumstances, a few nurses shine more than others. It is so heartwarming that the nurses are finally getting their spotlight.
