Profound Financial Helps Develop Plan For Disabled Children’s Futures

Dani Gardiner, Founder of Profound Financial, PLLC will host a free workshop on Saturday, April 28, called “Plan Now For Your Disabled Child’s Financial Independence.”

The workshop will be held in the office of Profound Financial, PLLC at 7121 W. Bell Rd., Suite 130, Glendale, from 9:30 am – 11 am. RSVP’s are appreciated.

Gardiner strongly believes in giving back to the parents of disabled children because she was born into a family that is ravaged by the hereditary disease Fragile X Syndrome, a genetic condition involving changes in part of the X chromosome which can cause extreme learning disabilities. Fortunately, Gardiner is not a carrier and is one of the only people in her family to not suffer from the disease. Her mother and three brothers are affected.

If you would like more information about the workshop or any of Profound Financial, PPLC’s services please contact info@profoundfinancial.com or call 623-566.9821.
