According to the hospital, Ashley has been hospitalized for the last six weeks.
"Ashley is our pink princess. This was a difficult hospitalization for her and we saw this as a chance to make her smile," said nurse Haydee Rodriguez, who organized the party.
They also gifted her a Barbie doll.
"This party made her feel like the beautiful diva that she is. The nurses have made this hard time in our lives bearable with these special acts of kindness," said Ashley's mother Cynthia.
