Chasing the Surge (Hardcover)
Grover Nicodemus Street is a travel nurse who felt it necessary to help others in these turbulent times. He has gone to COVID hotspots in the US since the beginning of the pandemic to do so and also to help keep his wife, who is a cancer survivor safe from this deadly virus. He also encountered many unbelievable events, like being suddenly stuck in the middle of a Black Lives Matter protest in New York, the storms of Florida last summer, and the gigafire of California. Grover's wife, Dr. Sandra de Abreu Guidry-Street stayed at home and researched the virus while he was working on the front lines. Even though he tried as hard as he could to keep COVID-19 away from his wife, it was not possible.
Grover felt compelled to write about his travels to share his experiences and shed light on the actual reality of the patients and healthcare workers who are behind the closed doors of hospitals. Chasing the Surge is a compelling story about this global pandemic but also to dispel misbeliefs about this virus and the vaccine. Being a Black American, Grover is dedicating a portion of the proceeds towards educating minority communities about coronavirus and the safety of the vaccine.
