Dear Brain Buddy Friends – 

It is with a very heavy heart that we report that, after a long and  valiant fight, Dan Hogan passed away on December 7. With his huge heart, unflagging energy, compassion, and drive, Dan inspired us all to be our best and to handle all manner of adversity with a smile and a can-do attitude.  He will be enormously missed by the Brain Buddy community and by all who had the good fortune to know him. 


The family is hosting a Celebration of his Life from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, December 20, in the Grand Assembly Hall of Chautauqua Park Community House.  Here is a link to the obituary.

Aphasia is a loss of language skills, not intellect. 

People with aphasia maintain the same level of cognitive capacities as before the onset of their aphasia, they simply now struggle with communication.
