MORE ABOUT ME

I’m the proud daughter of my parents, Kimesia and Desmond Davis. (You can read more about my mom below.)  I have an older sister, who is getting ready to graduate college, and big brother, Dalton, who was recently inducted into the National Honor Society. I’m so proud of them!

Just before my first birthday, I was diagnosed with spastic quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy.  What an awesome birthday gift!  Since then, I’ve been working very diligently to overcome CP.

I go to different types of therapy: speech, PT, OT, and even equine! I also visit the chiropractor twice a week. (Ask me which is my favorite!)

Enough about all the medical stuff, let’s talk about 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

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 Mom

But, 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.
