No parent wants to hear their child has a terminal illness, and there is no cure.

I am a member of the Church of Christ located in Ruleville, MS. I am the mother of 9 (6 boys and 3 girls) children, which 6 are living. I buried 2 stillborn baby boys in 2005 and 2006. In 2013, my eldest son Ja’Marcus Davon Davis was diagnosed with stage IV hepatocellular carcinoma (liver cancer). Unfortunately in 2014, my son won his battle with cancer through death. I am a 1st grade assistant teacher at Webster Street Elementary School in Yazoo City, MS. I became a published author in 2018. I wrote a book about my son’s spiritual journey with cancer to encourage and help grieving parents on how to cope with the illness and/or death of a child. I enjoy abstract painting and blogging. I created my own blog website to help women on mental health. I struggle with anxiety and I have learned several ways to cope with my illness.
