    “Everything we worked so hard for came crashing down,” said Leslie. “We had medical decisions to make, Mike was in the hospital for months at a time… we were overwhelmed by everything. The last thing you are thinking about is paying the bills, but they are still there, they don’t go away. Yusuf [Abugideiri, our pro bono financial planner] put all our finances in one place, so we were able to see the full picture. He confirmed things we weren’t sure about, and gave us answers to even the smallest questions… That formal approach really makes a difference.” Mike added, “We know Yusuf always has our back.”
