Björn Håkansson, our friend and Dysnet Board Member, passed away! He was a visionary, strong character, fighter and one of the founders of DysNet/EDRIC. He always had great ideas and was a successful negotiator.
For many people he was a role model. Living with his disability didn’t mean to accept limits. He tried everything he wanted (tennis, golf, skiing, boxing,…).
His initiatives, combat power, commitment, instinct, smart brain, strength, knowledge and fire for Thalidomide and DysNet/EDRIC where known worldwide. He connected Thalidomide survivors and people with Dysmelia from all over the world. He was a bridge builder and impressive person.
We are deeply saddened and will miss this great man and proud Viking.
Our thoughts are with his wife and daughter.
RIP - the Board - 1 december 2022
