It’s only fitting that when the National Brain Tumor Society announced that they were doing a polar plunge to raise money and awareness for brain cancer that we formed a team to celebrate and honor Sherif.
Dr. Sherif Daoud possesses an infectious aura of kindness that leaves a lasting inspirational impression on everyone he is around. Working just one shift, one minute, or even having one conversation with Sherif would motivate anyone to see his or her true potential.
Dr. Daoud joked that he was the sheriff of the Emergency Department after an incident where a patient read his nametag and told him “I need a Doctor, not a sheriff!”
With that joke in mind we have formed a team in his name called Sherif’s Sheriffs to support Dr. Daoud as he undergoes treatment.
The event is called “Connecticut Brain Freeze” and it is comprised of “teams” of people that you, yes you sitting right there procrastinating on your phone, can make jump into the water. How do you make them jump? Numbingly simple (get the pun?) If each member of the team has $100 dollars donated to their individual account then they will jump. However, these team members will not have to jump in if they don’t reach $100!
It’s incredibly important that you donate to support this important cause and the individuals battling this difficult disease like Sherif!
