Good Morning America: NFL helps send Aya travel nurse Melissa Perleoni to the Super Bowl
With the help of the NFL, Good Morning America and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ cheerleaders, Aya traveler Melissa Perleoni got the surprise of her life with a ticket to Super Bowl LV! Aya was thrilled to secure two tickets to make sure travelers were represented among the 7,500 healthcare workers being honored at this year’s game.
Melissa Perleoni is a pediatric oncology nurse who was on assignment at a NY hospital ahead of the pandemic yet stayed to help her patients now dealing with both cancer and COVID-19. Away from her home and family in Florida, Melissa often served as the link between her ill patients and their families due to visitation restrictions. She continues to help children at her new assignment at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. We couldn’t be more grateful for her perseverance through unimaginable circumstances.
