About Melina Michelle Edenfield Foundation
On May 22, 2020, the lives of the Edenﬁeld family changed in an unimaginable way, when their youngest of three daughters, Melina Michelle Edenﬁeld — a joyful, energetic, and brilliant little four-year-old
In Melina’s memory, we have formed the Melina Michelle Edenfield Foundation. We are dedicated to helping other families avoid this terrible tragedy by raising awareness and money to help find a cure for DMG and DIPG pediatric brain tumors.
About The Choose Joy Event
In 2020, a group of neighborhood kids lost one of their best friends, Melina. At age 4, her life was taken too quickly from a pediatric brain tumor. Determined to honor the spirit of their friend, Melina’s ten besties created The Choose Joy event in their front yard; a tribute to their friend’s vivacious, playful personality and a call to action to find a cure for the pediatric brain tumor that took their friend’s life.
This year Melina’s Joy Team decided they had to go bigger and front yards were not enough: This year they are moving the event to The Green in Canfield! Save the date for The Choose Joy Event on Saturday, August 7th from 11:30am-4:00pm and join Melina’s Besties for a donation-based, fun day of face painting, bounce houses, photo booths, giveaways, raffles and more to raise awareness and funds for pediatric brain tumor research!
