CARBONDALE, IL (KFVS) - It's an amazing story of 7-year-old twin sisters, Havyn and Hadly Noto, who are living with muscular dystrophy.
The twins live in Carterville, Illinois and have had an outpouring of support from their community during their struggle with the disorder that effects their muscle development and will eventually effect their organs.
On Thursday March 31 at 2:30 p.m., students at the Giant City School in Carbondale, Ill. presented a check the Noto family for $1,197 to go toward wheel chairs for the girls.
The twin's mother, April Noto, is a special education teacher at the Giant City School.
"God, has showed us how many caring people we have in this world," Noto said. "The 5th grade class has really helped us."
The two girls and their family have received tremendous support from members of their community, most recently including a transport van that will fit the girl's wheel chairs.
The girls were also had their wishes granted from the Make a Wish Foundation.
The next fund-raising event for the Havyn and Hadly will be a quarter auction on April 10 at 2 p.m. in the Carterville Community Center at 120 North Greenbriar Road in Carterville, Ill.
