Olivia Davis

Shreveport, Louisiana

Olivia Davis, 17, of Shreveport, La., a senior at Caddo Parish Magnet High School, started an initiative in 2015 that has created and donated treat-filled “chemo kits” for more than 600 people undergoing cancer treatment. Inspired by her late aunt, who started a cancer-fighting nonprofit after being treated for breast cancer, Olivia collects selected items and monetary donations for her care packages, and hosts a volunteer kit-packing day during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
