One Charlotte family is now in an unimaginable battle as they fight to save the life of their twin daughter.
4-year-old Edilia Mendez-Gomez was diagnosed earlier this year with a severe case of Hodgkin’s lymphoma. After the diagnosis, she was put through a full round of chemo, but unfortunately, the cancer came back. She is currently in a second round of chemo, but due to technical issues with their insurance, they are unable to pay for the treatment.
The family recently started a GoFundMe campaign to raise funds for her treatment, and so far the city of Charlotte has rallied behind them to raise over $9,000 out of their $15,000 goal.
Edilia’s mom Melody Gomez posted this update on the campaign:
“I can not personally thank you all enough for all your kindness and Prayers. This definitely has been a tough journey for our family and to see all the people that have came together and not only give money but reach out with words of encouragement, and Prayers has been a true Testament to our Faith to never give up and to continue fighting! Thanks so much to everyone. You all are so appreciate.”
The family has said they’re still paying $1,000 a month for Dilia’s weekly chemo treatments, even after insurance.
