Afred Cohen passed away on September 27th, 2017 Just before his 40th birthday. He was a warrior brother who inspired us all. He never gave up hope though his life was a challenging one. He always remained a positive influence for others and relentlessly optimistic and willing to pick others up when they were down. The Hulk as he was known for his strength was only surpassed by the size of his heart. His heaviest weight that he carried the world on. May your name be lifted to the gates of heaven. May you rest peacefully, now and forever.

DJ Cohen was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic Cancer on February 27, 2015 at 3:30 PM at the age of 38. DJ is the devoted husband of Alexis, and the loving father of 3 beautiful girls: Linda Candice (age 10) Lori Stephanie (age 9), and Caroline Lee (age 6). Upon his diagnosis, DJ took to poetry to express his most vulnerable thoughts, fears and emotions – mixing stark reality, inflections of sarcasm,humor, and feelings everyone can relate to. DJ began to share his poems with people via social media as well as in person, making an indelible impact on those who know him, thought they knew him, or didn’t know him at all.
Originally “Team Deej” was the name for DJ’s support group – a tight circle of family and friends. But DJ is no ordinary human being, much less an ordinary cancer patient so it would stand to reason that he would have an extraordinary support group. You see, DJ makes an impact on everyone he meets and what started as a small group quickly evolved into a team – Team Deej. People who had fleeting interactions with him in the past began to visit him in the hospital, or at home citing their concern for such a genuine, caring person. DJ’s selfless energy and positive attitude are contagious, and he quickly began to inspire and motivate the very people who were there to support him. DJ would welcome them with warmth and humor, and in the end it was them thanking him for their visit! If you have ever have the pleasure of visiting DJ during his tri-monthly chemo treatments you will find him dressed in a different costume each time, hoping to inspire the other patients and visitors to keep things light, and most importantly to remember to smile.
Since his diagnosis in February 2015, DJ made it his mission, and the mission of Team Deej to motivate and inspire anyone facing any type of personal hardship, large or small. Working with local community organizations, as well as businesses large and small, DJ speaks in fronts of crowds of hundreds and thousands as a living example of what it means to live life to the fullest each day. DJ educates others on the importance of practicing mindfulness, being aware of opportunities as they arise, appreciating the best in people, and how gratitude affects your attitude.

KT just left a new 5-star review of Advance Funds Network:
Leon from AFN first contacted my company back in April of this year. He got us a deal but we were not ready to move forward on incurring debt. He always, and I emphasize always, kept polite contact through email. Why is that important? If you are a business owner, I am quite sure you are bombarded with calls from brokers trying to get a loan for you and they are quite rude. Never introducing themselves, asking for your name as if you know each other, and for the most part rude. I like you hate those calls. Leon respected my request to be in contact when we were ready and to the date, reached out to find out if our need changed. It had not. When the need did occur he was the first and only broker I contacted. He earned that. His first offer was not what I was looking for. He then called back about an hour later with the offer I wanted and we were funded one business day later. Smooth as silk. Having as many professionals on your side of the fence is ideal when doing business. Leon of Advance Funds Network is THAT person. He did not stop until he got the deal to make me the client happy. And was NOT pushy when we were not ready. Heck, in sales...you want to close every and anything...but Leon is the one that does because he respects the buying time of the client. That's professional, astute, and the one you want brokering your loan. Thanks Leon.

Joe S. Was absolutely awesome to work with! I have dealt with other lenders in the past, but AFN was through, quick, and kept me in the loop every step of the way. They also offered some valuable advice to help get my business to the next level in the future. I will continue to be a client!
