So far the online fund has raised more than $20,000. Those wishing to help may donate and leave messages for the family at  www.youcaring.com/familyofkaylagomez-684535.  ;

Several area businesses also have collected funds and dedicated portions of sales to help the family, including Raising Cane's in Tyler, which on Wednesday dedicated 15 percent of its sales to the family, and Studio Movie Grill, which plans to donate 100 percent of sales generated in the 1:45 p.m. Sunday showing of "Trolls."

The Tyler Paper asks that information about other efforts be mailed to news@tylerpaper.com to be added to this list.
