  • Godspeed, Michael Lang

    By now, many of you have heard of the passing of Michael Lang, owner of Brainchild Nutritionals. Michael died Tuesday night, October 16, at his home with family and loved ones at his side. He fought a brief and valiant battle against pancreatic cancer. Our prayers go out to his family, especially his two children, who are recovered from autism.

    I first met Michael several years ago as we were both starting our own companies and were facing similar difficulties. I was immediately taken with his honesty, passion, and determination to make a difference in this world. Michael was an integral fixture at many autism conferences such as DAN!, Autism One and ASA. He attended several DAN! think tanks and actually contributed to the latest DAN! think tank by phone from his hospital bed. I did not see him last week at DAN!, and Terri Mykland of Brainchild told me he was not well, but could not go into details. Michael did not want us worrying about him. When Terri called me on Wednesday to tell me of his death, I was crushed.

    His passion and energy for helping families dealing with autism was second to none. The autism community has lost a kind and generous soul.

    Brainchild Nutritionals will continue with operations without interruption. By helping kids with their nutritional support needs, Michael's legacy will also continue.

    I will miss you, my friend. Rest in peace.
