Kid Captain is a partnership between Children’s of Mississippi and the Ole Miss Rebels to salute pediatric patients. Their inspirational stories remind us just how truly courageous these young people are.

This week’s Children’s of Mississippi Kid Captain is Myles Davis of Pearl.

In August of 2017, Myles was diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma, a form of bone and soft tissue cancer.

Since his diagnosis, Myles has undergone three surgeries to remove the cancer, along with many chemo treatments. The Davis family says Dr. Collier and the entire staff at Batson Children’s Hospital has walked them the whole process with care and compassion.

During his stays at Batson, you are most likely to find Myles either at the nurse’s station, in the play room, or running the hall with his buddies. Even when Myles is not feeling well, he keeps a positive attitude.

Myles never lets his cancer stop him. In fact, even while going through treatment, he has continued to play select baseball.

Have fun at Saturday’s game, Myles! Your friends at Children’s of Mississippi are cheering for you!

Help us grow so they can grow.
