A big thank you to Gabriel Carrejo for helping with the venue. I am looking to do big things to support the Anissa Lopez Foundation and the George Mark house.

About the Anissa Lopez Foundation

In 2006 our family suffered the loss of 2 year-old Anissa Lopez after a tragic choking accident. Before she left, Anissa introduced us to the wonderful people and amazing facilities at the George Mark Children’s House.

We started the Anissa Lopez Foundation shortly thereafter as a memorial and an opportunity for friends and family to support the George Mark House in Anissa’s honor. What started as a intimate family affair has grown into multiple fundraising events throughout the year.

The staff at George Mark made an unbearable situation bearable and we’re forever grateful that Anissa introduced us to this amazing group of people. Please show your support so we can help other families make the best of very challenging situations.

About the George Mark Children’s House

GMCH’s family-centered, life-affirming philosophy acknowledges the terrible stress a child’s serious illness places on every family member, and provides services to support parents and siblings, as well as the seriously ill child. The ultimate goal of the House is to assist families in remaining intact, functional and capable of achieving the highest quality of life together in the midst of extreme circumstances. Here is a quick video that explains how the George Mark Children’s House impacts the lives of children and their families.
