Dan Lita’s Brain Injury Storyboard

This page is named in honor of our dear friend, Dan Lita, who was an active participant in BIC-NW.  Dan inspired us to share our stories in order to encourage others and to simply “know each other better”.  He led by example and was an encouragement to us all.

If you would like to share your experiences with readers on our website, or even just with friends or family, we would love to hear from you and we will help you put your story in writing.

If you’re interested, please contact us by email at info@bic-nw.org, or by phone at (971) 258-0561.
