New tennis shoes for Davion for his first day of school

Posted Jul 19, 2021
Davion has never had a pair of name brand tennis shoes. He would love a pair of Nike Jordan's. He has been in and out of foster care and said "I get whatever is left". This wish, if granted, will help with his self -esteem and will let him know that there are others who care about him. He says he would like these shoes so he can be "really dressed up for the first day of school."

Davion is 16 years old and lives in TX

Davion recently came back into care. Unfortunately, he has been in and out of the system since he was very young due to his mother's drug use. He is deeply hurt by his past trauma and states he just wants to live without being disrupted again. He enjoys music, sports and cooking. He has a medical challenge so he has to have dialysis three times a week. He says he used to be sad and depressed about it, but he now knows that if he follows the rules the doctors have laid out, he will be better soon and hopes to be placed on a transplant list. So he is happy that there is hope!
