Save ALL the second Mondays for DAN!


The next DAN meeting is Monday, May 8th from 6:00-9:00 p.m. at La Hacienda Ranch at 17390 Preston Road in Dallas. Scott Sabolich Prosthetics & Research will present the program. Also, Adele Woodard is bringing some door prizes so there will be a drawing at the end of the meeting, for amputees only. This date marks the 15-year anniversary of the first DAN meeting; at the time our support group did not even have a name! There were just 16 attendees: 10 amputees, 4 spouses, 1 physical trainer and 1 prosthetist, Amy Mehary. Now we have over 200 amputees on the database, and, according to the Amputee Coalition, we’re the largest and most active amputee support group in the nation.

Linda Walls has plans for increased participation by everyone in DAN activities and events. Some suggestions include bowling, movies, and road trips to Oklahoma casinos. Linda is the manager of the DAN Facebook page and has done a fantastic job! Bring your ideas to the meeting for things that would be fun and interesting for us to do—we encourage everyone to participate! Those who are interested can sign up at the next meeting.
