Doug’s family would like to extend a very heart-felt thank you to the numerous healthcare workers who took part in his care including Dr. Stephen and Dr. Kendra Saari, Dr. Mohammad Rassouli, Dr. Sarwat Shehata, and ICU doctors, Ghosh, Landry, Difabio, Khot, Berg and White. They would also like to thank all of the wonderful nurses in ICU, especially Jessica, Robin, Kaitlyn and Charlie, as well as the nurses in Radiation and Oncology at SAH. A special thank you goes out to the Dechamplain family, whom Doug loved very dearly. Doug was his usual witty self, joking with family, friends and staff, until the very end.
