Hi, My Name is Kelcie

5 things about me

  1. I'm 10 years old! (My birthday just past.)
  2. I live and go to school in Midlothian, Texas (does that count as 2 things?)
  3. My birthday is September 22.
  4. I was born in Dallas, Texas (GO WINGS!)
  5. I only weighed 2.83 pounds and was a little more than two months early. (That's is 2 things!)

I'm the daughter of the proud parents of Kimesia and Desmond Davis. I have an older sister, Kylie Fitzgerald, and big brother, Dalton Davis.

Just before my first birthday on September 13, 2010, I was diagnosed with spastic quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy. What an awesome birthday gift! Since then, I've been working very diligently to do my best to strive to overcome CP. I've been going to different types of therapy: speech, PT, OT, and even equine! I also visit the chiropractor twice a week.

Enough about all the medical stuff, let's get into the things that I love to do! I love watching Paw Patrol, Daniel Tiger, Top Wing, and occasionally Caillou. I consider myself a diva! I think I have a fabulous personality. I’m a fashionista, and I LOVE to get my hair and feet done like any girl my age! I think I do very well at picking out my clothes and getting dressed.

I am a fan of the Dallas Wings in the WNBA. Sometimes I call Kaela Davis my cousin LOL, but she's really not; we just share the same last name. When football season comes around I like the Dallas Cowboys…Go Cowboys!!!  Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott are my favorite players on the team! I also like Ohio State for college football.

I love to travel. The beach is life! Sometimes I wish I stayed near the beach; I would go more often. Maybe one day my dad and I can travel to multiple beaches in a year.

 

In late 2015 my parents started my foundation,
the Kelcie D. Davis Foundation.

Kelcie and MomBut, in late 2016, my mother was diagnosed with adenocarcinoma stage four cancer. My dad had to devote more time to me, and my mom. My mom had a tough time with her battle with cancer. April 10, 2018, was the worst day of my life. I was told my mom had gained her wings and passed away. Now she's in heaven shining down on me. I miss my mom so much; I talk about her every day. I know she's with me as I continue my journey to overcome CP.

I would like to give a special thanks to my community, my church, and the others who helped me through this difficult time. Now I'm asking everyone to help the Dynamic Duo, that's me and my amazing dad, help others as they have helped us.
