Juan Lopez a Border Patrol Agent assigned to the Yuma Border Patrol Sector has been diagnosed with stage IV brain cancer, (there is no stage V). Agent Lopez has been an agent for just short of ten years; he is married with two school age children. Agent Lopez was also a K-9 handler when he was diagnosed with this terminal disease. In February a team of Doctors at St Josephs in Phoenix diagnosed Agent Lopez with the disease and anticipate an 18 month survival for Agent Lopez.

Agent Lopez and his family must travel over 200 miles and stay in Phoenix for ongoing operations and some treatments. This has caused a financial hardship along with a toll on the young family as a whole. The children have generally stayed behind in Yuma so they may attend school.

On November 6, 2010 we plan on having a benefit car show and shine for Agent Lopez at the Cocopah Casino and Resort in Yuma, Arizona (we anticipate 250 entries).

This show will have over 30 different classes of competition including a people’s choice. We will have DJ’s, vendors, raffles and of course the access to the resort and casino. The event will be on the grass with activities for the kids. Come out and support Juan and his family.

Super trophies will be awarded to each of the following categories:
Best of Show
Tribal Council Choice
Directors Choice
Juan’s Pick
Juan’s Wife Pick
Trophies will be awarded for an additional 39 Categories including a kids pick
