After Shannon and Chris welcomed beautiful twin girls Leah and Christina in 2014 into
the world, they faced complications. Shannon was admitted to Erlanger Hospital’s high risk unit. Shortly after admittance, Shannon and Chris received paramount news about their newborns that caused instant fear.
Leah was healthy and just needed to grow in the NICU but unfortunately, Christina faced a different road. For the past three years, she has been on a journey battling epilepsy and heart disease.
While the twins were in the hospital, the Davis family found a home at the Chattanooga Ronald McDonald House. They were
welcomed with open arms and open hearts.
“We love it at the House! There they don’t treat you like a burden. The people there will just hug you!” said Shannon
Shannon found a lot of comfort in the Ronald McDonald House while her daughters were in the NICU. She was able to lean on the staff and volunteers at the House while she cared for her daughters. Staying at the House gave her the ability to be close to the girls and see them at any time. She cherished a warm bed to sleep in while catching up from the hectic events of the day.
Fast forward to this past September, Shannon and Chris were able to stay at the Ronald McDonald House for the second time. Staying at the House gave them the opportunity to be close by while Christina had to go back to Erlanger to get various tests.
Today, Christina is back at home with her sister Leah and they are living life to the fullest. They have become best friends over the years!
