CARE Team Presents Keanu Ashmore – Rising Star Award
Keanu Ashmore works in Food & Nutrition Services as a tray passer but he does more than just that, he makes sure every patient he gives a tray to is greeted with respect and caring words. He also takes the time out to sit with them to have a friendly conversation. He seems to always put smiles on the patients’ faces. One day, Keanu noticed one of the patients was very scared because she had no family present and she was going to start chemo therapy. He brought her a handmade scrub hat that had smiley faces all over it and gave it to her, letting her know she was not alone and he is here for her. Some tray passers just give the patients food but Keanu goes beyond that, he gives love, compassion and comfort too.
