This Friday, 5 April 2019, Bineham & Gillen’s very own Doug Bineham will participate in the 4th Annual Models of Courage Fashion Show. The event will celebrate cancer fighters, cancer survivors, and those living with special disabilities with an evening of festivities, fundraising, and prizes. This year’s beneficiary will be the Angie’s Angels Foundation, an organization that supports families affected by cancer and special disabilities.
The event will run from 6 pm to 11:30 pm and host a fashion show as well as musical entertainment and a casino night. The fashion show will feature models of all ages who are in cancer treatment, are cancer survivors, or who live with a disability.
Doug Bineham is a managing partner at Bineham & Gillen PLLC, Corpus Christi native, and alumni of St. Mary’s University Law School. In 2015, Doug was diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer found in his stomach, esophagus, and lymph nodes.
“Susan has been an angel from God lovingly nursing me back to health over the last two years. I doubt I would still be here but for Susan’s diligent and relentless care.” – Doug
With the love, faith, and support of friends and family, Doug and his family pushed through many dark and difficult moments. September 2016 was especially difficult – after an emergency exploratory surgery, the doctors told his family that Doug may not survive the procedure. This was the third of four surgeries that Doug would have that year.
The past couple of years has given Doug and his family a lot to be thankful for. His friends, church, and community have done more than anyone could ever ask for.
“James Gillen my law partner, friend & hardest working attorney I know is an amazing man. He has worked like a dog for two years to keep our firm afloat and to keep me from losing my health insurance. He sent me home more times than I can count, when he knew I wasn’t in any condition to be at the office. James you are the best!” – Doug
We’re so proud of Doug’s resiliency and will be rooting him on at the fashion show this week. He truly is a Model of Courage and represents everything Bineham & Gillen PLLC stands for.
