When Eileen Pioli was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer she thought things could not get any worse, a single mother of three children with disabilities, including severe autism, Eileen could not stand another disaster. Then, in the dead of summer, disaster struck in the form of a broken A/C unit. “I woke up one morning to a sweltering hot house; I knew right away the A/C unit gave out “said Eileen Pioli. After seeing the Michael & Son Services program “Helping Hands” Eileen sent a letter directly to Basim Manour, Proud Son of Michael & Son Services and hoped for the best.
“When I received Eileen’s letter, it immediately struck a chord with me” said Basim Manour, Proud Son & Owner of Michael & Son Services”. My mother suffered from and eventually succumbed to breast cancer; I was happy to help take part of the burden off her shoulders” continued Mansour.
Michael & Son Services stepped in and provided the Pioli family with a brand new A/c system, totaling over $10,000. Following the repairs, an elated Mrs. Pioli had a brand new A/C system and a large burden off her shoulders. “One of my biggest fears was going through chemotherapy without a working A/C system in the dead of summer, thanks to Michael & Son; I don’t have to worry any more”.
