Narjust Florez: To this Latina that left everything behind to pursue a dream becoming FASCO

Narjust Florez shared ASCO’s post on X/Twitter and added:

“To this Latina that left everything behind to pursue a dream becoming FASCO only 4 years after completing training is something that I would have never imagined.

Grandma, I’m FASCO now!”

Quoting ASCO’s post:

“Join us in congratulating the following members on earning the Fellow of ASCO (FASCO) distinction this quarter! We’re grateful for your extraordinary volunteer service, dedication, and commitment to ASCO.
