“Overnight, I went from just being responsible for myself to also being responsible for my father’s entire life, from financial and legal affairs to insurance coverage and doctors. I was out of my depth and alone. Until I called MPTF.”

Michelle Homerin

Manager, Casting, Twentieth Century Fox Television
