Dave and Emily had only been married for a year when Dave was diagnosed with a serious health concern. This young couple quickly found themselves in serious financial difficulty when they acquired a mortgage that they couldn't afford and were using their credit cards to pay for their day-to-day living expenses. Their credit was quickly maxed out. The stress of his illness coupled with the reality of their financial situation only added to Dave's anxiety and sleepless nights. Dave knew he had to fight for his life — and his financial future.
While doing research on the Internet they came across the Grant Thornton website and they made an appointment. They met with an experienced Trustee who reviewed their situation and discussed their options. With the Trusee's help the couple decided to file a Consumer Proposal and developed a budget to stay on track.
Today, four years later, Dave's health has improved and the couple is facing a bright financial future, with a young daughter on the way. "Visiting the Grant Thornton office that day and talking to the Trustee was one of the best decisions I've ever made in my life," said Dave. "I felt like a weight had been lifted off of my shoulders."
