Extreme Makeover Home Edition has come together to build a new home for Jonah and his family. Great people the Gomez family are, and how wonderful is this for them! Jonah is such a great and inspiring boy.
From @extremehome :
“Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” travels to South Jordan, UT to meet the Gomez family. @typennington @michaelmoloney1 @paigehemmis @xzibit
Fun-loving, impish Jonah Gomez is like any loveable, mischievous little boy, with dreams of becoming a professional soccer player.
His love of life has not been diminished by the fact that he has blood disorders which have caused him to undergo open-heart surgery.
Mom Jessica and younger sister Ellie have made every effort to help Jonah live his life to the fullest.
The Gomez Family are much loved in their community, which has rallied around Jonah, while spreading the word about bone marrow donorship.
So far there has been no bone marrow match for Jonah. He faces a tougher challenge than most because he’s of Latin descent.
And statistically fewer minorities join the National Marrow Donor Program.

So heart warming to hear how David, his music and his fans have helped Jonah and his family to stay strong, and how greatly the Gomez family has influenced David’s life. <3
