CHC-NE Adds 19th Member Charity!

Community Health Charities of Nebraska (CHC-NE) has announced that the Brain Injury Alliance of Nebraska (BIA-NE) is the newest charity to join the statewide fundraising federation. With this addition, there are now 19 member charities that provide support for those with chronic health issues across the state of Nebraska, effective July 1, 2016. 

“The CHC-NE Board of Directors is very pleased to extend membership to the Brain Injury Alliance of Nebraska,” said Craig Sall, State Board Chair. “Through education, outreach and family support, public awareness and advocacy, the Brain Injury Alliance of Nebraska is making a difference for those in our state affected by brain injury. We look forward to helping them fulfill their mission.” 

BIA-NE is committed to creating a better future for all Nebraskans with brain injuries and is the only non-profit exclusively dedicated to brain injury in the state. BIA-NE is serving the brain injury population by working to secure and develop community-based services and provide support groups and access to pertinent information, medical resources and service referrals. The organization also helps educate professionals who work with children and adults with brain injury.

 “We are honored to become members of Community Health Charities of Nebraska. CHC-NE is a leader and innovator in raising awareness and critical funds for those living in Nebraska with a chronic illness, and we are proud to list alongside their trusted brand of charities,” said Peggy Reisher, Executive Director.

Wain and Mary Finke loved being active. They owned a business, traveled, hiked and skied with their children. Mary also was an avid water skier, until one day she had trouble releasing the tow rope. That weakness led her to a neurologist and the diagnosis of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, eventually took Mary’s ability to walk and speak, but it didn’t take her spirit or her sense of humor.
