Welcome to Our Light The Night Walk Team McLopez Fundraising Page

If we could be connected to each other in a world without cancer, that would be our dream.

Eddie and Anne both lost their mothers to cancer and have a passion for finding a cure for all cancers including breast cancer that took Anne's mom in 1995 and colon cancer that took Eddie's mom in April 2017. We are partnered with LLS to find a cure for blood cancers like Chronic Myeloid Leukemia that Anne has, and other cancers. LLS supports research projects that are not only identifying treatments for blood cancers but also other cancers.

In 2016, Team McLopez was the top Friends and Family Team. With the help of friends, family, and community, we raised $12,000 and had 60 walkers join us for Light the Night. When LLS came to us asking if Anne would be the 2017 Honored Hero, we said YES!


As Honored Hero, Anne is speaking at venues across the Valley to raise awareness of LLS events and research projects like #BeatAML. Visit https://www.lls.org/bear-aml to learn more.

Anne's Story

In 2004 I convinced a few friends to walk 60 miles in three days to raise money and awareness for breast cancer. I was honoring my mother. Our team was called Sisters with Blisters. We went through a lot together and many of us are still the best of friends.

On July 26, 2016 I was diagnosed with Philadelphia Positive Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (Ph+ CML). While the experts are cautiously optimistic there is a cure on the horizon, the protocol for CML is a daily chemo pill and routine bloodwork until there is a better option or a cure. At the time of my diganosis, my leukemic cell count was 86% and as of May 2017, it was just .06%!

In times like this, the love for each other is all that matters.

When I heard the word cancer, I did what I've done since 2004, I called the team and asked if they'd like to walk with me again. I promised this would be a shorter walk for an important cause.

We're raising money and awareness to find a cure for CML and all blood cancers through our participation in the Light the Night Walk. Any help you can offer is greatly appreciated.

Support Team McLopez or your favorite walker and help us find a cure!
