The Kristen Lopez Medical Trust Fund

by m

The Kristen Lopez Medical Trust Fund has been set up by Kristin’s family in order to help her receive the proper treatment that she needs as a recently diagnosed A.M.L patient.

Acute Myeloid Leukemia or A.M.L is a cancer of the myeloid line of blood cells, characterized by the rapid growth of abnormal white blood cells that accumulate in the bone marrow and interfere with the production of normal blood cells.

Kristin is a young, determined young woman who as you will read below has been taken away from her her tennis scholarship in the USA to receive chemotherapy.

If you would like to get involved, details of this trust fund are shown below and there is also a Facebook group which you may join.

We hope that Kristin stays strong and know that she has an expansive support group of friends and family by her side to help her through this.

Please read the below from the Founders of The Kristin Lopez Medical Trust Fund:

Dear Friends,

I am sure that you are aware of the tragic situation that has befallen Kristen Lopez.

Kristen who is currently on a tennis scholarship in the USA has been diagnosed with A.M.L, a very aggressive form of leukemia. Kristen is undergoing her first stage of chemotherapy now and all indications are that this will be a lengthy and extremely difficult and expensive process for the Lopez family.

In an effort to help defray some of the considerable cost for treatment, travel accommodations etc., we the Friends of Ocean View Tennis have established the “Kristen Lopez Medical Trust Fund” of which Archie Cuke, David Sumpter and Adrian Brancker are the trustees and we are asking the corporate friends of Ocean View tennis to generously support this cause.

The Trust Fund has been established at BNB, the account number is 018288232001.

Kindly make your cheques payable to “The Kristen Lopez Medical Trust Fund”

Your donations will be greatly appreciated and will contribute tremendously towards Kristen’s successful recovery.

Yours truly,

Adrian Brancker
Archie Cuke
David Sumpter
