CANFIELD, Ohio (WKBN) – The Melina Michelle Edenfield Foundation held its second annual “Choose Joy for Melina” event Saturday.
Community members came out to show support for the foundation, which was created after 4-year-old Melina Edenfield died from brain cancer in June 2020.
The raffles, face painting, bounce houses and music raised money for pediatric brain tumor research.
The foundation has raised over $300,000 this year.
Melina’s parents said they are extremely grateful for the support.
“Honestly, like I don’t even know. It’s like a dream. I can’t believe that this is what this turned into. From our front yard, to this – it’s just unreal. It’s unreal,” Michelle Edenfield said.
