I am proud to be participating in the Heroes of Hope Walk again this year in memory of my wife Anna DeAlto Tilles. Money raised from this event will fund Los Angeles Childhood and Adult brain tumor and cancer research!
Anna walked in 11th Annual Heroes of Hope Walk in November 2017. She was at that time one year into her battle with brain cancer. She passed away three months after the race, in February 2018. I know she drew inspiration and strength from the large number of supporters and survivors that participated in the event.
Anna was a devoted mom, wife, and keeper of the family flame and her 3 children, myself and all of Anna's great circle of of friends and family miss her deeply. Anna was a quiet but effective example of all the best qualities that humankind has to offer, spreading her personal caring and affection one person at a time. Anna was a passionate and devoted school teacher for over 30 years at Allesandro Elementary School, located near Dodger Stadium. Being a teacher was such a large part of her life that it was only fitting that the team be called Team "Teacher Anna".
Please help -- in Anna's memory -- by sponsoring me or my Team - Team Teacher Anna. Thank you. David Tilles and family
