BCBIA Special Presentation and AGM

Each year, the BC Brain Injury Association (BCBIA) brings the community together to raise awareness of the organization and its efforts in helping to improve the lives of people with acquired brain injuries.

Our next event will take place on Thursday, June 22, 2017 from 5:30pm to 9:00pm at the Coast Coal Harbour Hotel in Vancouver, BC.

This special reception and presentation will be led by Simon Paradis & Kara Stanley – authors of “Fallen” a heart-wrenching story of brain injury recovery and relationships. Fallen was named one of CBC’s top books of 2015. The non-fiction book, written by Kara Stanley, is an honest and visceral account that details the long road to recovery that Simon and his family faced.
