Walk to End Alzheimer's Event Receives Unlikely Assistance

According to the Alzheimer's association (http://www.alz.org), 5.4 million Americans are currently living with Alzheimer's disease, and those numbers are rising. With one in eight elder Americans struggling with the disease, organizations like the Alzheimer's association are making valiant efforts to help increase funding and research. The association hosts several Alzheimer events and is one of the largest Alzheimer research contributors in the world.

The hard-working men and women at the association have been preparing as this year's latest fundraising opportunity quickly approaches. The association's "Walk to End Alzheimer's" event is an annual nation-wide event focused on raising awareness and funds for Alzheimer's research, support, and care. Donations are widely coveted and new sponsors are actively pursued to help increase efforts and provide Alzheimer victims with a fighting chance.

The "Walk to End Alzheimer's" organizers set this year's goal at $90,000, but the economic climate as well as other unforeseen circumstances has left them tens of thousands of dollars short of their goal.

Peggy Mione, a Quality Assurance Assessment Manager for Hospice Touch, has been reaching out to local businesses to help spark interest and donations to get the event back on track. Her dedication to the cause has led to a number of significant donations and has raised awareness throughout the community.

"I have been blessed with the responsibility of upholding the highest standards of patient care, and my experiences have instilled a passion for those suffering from Dementia. I assist victims within my unit at Hospice Touch and truly felt the devastating effects of the disease through my experience with a young family there. Once a well-liked sole wage earner with a wife and two young children, I saw a man begin to forget his own wife's name. The experience touched me and I feel that anything that I can do to help raise awareness and contribute to a cure is very rewarding."

-Peggy Mione, Quality Assessment Manager at Hospice Touch in Santa Ana, CA

Peggy Mione's hard work and dedication has not gone unnoticed. John Bisnar and Brian Chase, head partners of the Bisnar Chase law firm, make several yearly donations to numerous causes, but were just now made aware of the Alzheimer Association's local efforts and the community's opportunities to help out.

When Mr. Bisnar first received Peggy's communication asking for his assistance, he felt a connection and made a donation. Had Peggy not approached the Bisnar Chase law firm, Mr. Bisnar feels that there would be little chance that his firm would have ever donated.

"Having represented many traumatic brain injury victims, we have first-hand knowledge of the struggles an Alzheimer's victim and their families' experience. We are all fortunate that there are people like Peggy dedicated to organizations like the Alzheimer's Association whose mission is to end a disease that could affect any of us. Peggy's dedication motivated us to help support the Alzheimer's Association."

-John Bisnar

Bisnar Chase is not the only business ready to put their money where their mouth is. Several other sponsors have donated significant amounts to bring the Alzheimer's Association closer to their goal, but there is still plenty of work to be done. The total amount raised for the Walk To End Alzheimer's event is $17,021.13. With more than $70,000.00 needed to reach their goal, and the event deadline just around the corner, every little bit helps and they are counting on you.

In addition to direct donations, those looking to join the cause can take a look at several options on the Alzheimer's Awareness website. You can donate to a particular participant or you can choose a team. The Walk to End Alzheimer's Event will be held in Southern California and anyone is welcome to attend.

Client Reviews of Bisnar Chase

“John Bisnar was so professional and caring. When I found myself in this situation and never having a car accident before I didn't know what steps to take. Mr. Bisnar explained every single detail to me and what to expect. His staff was amazing, friendly and seemed to really care about me as a person. I lost all doubt I may have had about dealing with personal injury lawyers and couldn't be happier with the level of service I received. I was constantly updated on my case status and received far more from my settlement than I expected.”

“My sister in law referred me to Bisnar Chase after I was rear ended on the 405 in January. They went over everything with me for best and worst case scenarios of my car accident claim. I fully knew what to expect and was informed every step of the way. That was a major factor to me! In addition to my settlement which I was really happy with, I couldn't believe how great their whole staff treated me. I really felt like "me" as a person mattered a lot to them. Would highly recommend!”

“I could not recommend Bisnar & Chase highly enough! Now, I must be forthcoming and tell you that I am writing this review on behalf of my wonderful mother. You see, she's a mom, and therefor [sic] by nature is completely unable to do even the most simple of tasks on the internet. Like writing a a Yelp review. But we all love our moms don't we? Yes. We all love our moms (except Charles Manson), and would do anything to make sure they are protected and well taken care of. Upon referral from my mother's coworker, we contacted Bisnar & Chase. They had done a great job in this previous case and were located extremely close to both UCI and home, which made stopping by their office very convenient for my Mom. My Mom had been in an auto accident, nothing crazy but not a mere fender bender, and suffered what we thought to be some minor whiplash. Months later this was definitely not the case. Her client experience with the associates at Bisnar & Chase was so impressive that she raved to me about every time she heard anything from them. How thorough they were. How they listened better than I did (or something to that effect). How she liked Shannon and Mr. Bisnar and felt that they really had her best interests at heart. I honestly couldn't get her to shut up about them. But as a daughter that last part was all that I needed to hear to know that I we had found the right people and I could sleep easy at night knowing my Mom was in good hands. The Bisnar & Chase team really went above and beyond my family's expectations. And for that I am extremely grateful. If you live in the Newport Beach/Irvine/Costa Mesa/General Orange County area I would highly recommend Bisnar & Chase to both friends, and family.”
