In 2013, the Tennessee softball team adopted Averi Ramsey, a young cancer patient who has fought Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia for over three years, through Team IMPACT.
The team held a special draft party last April welcoming young Averi to the team. Over the past year, senior Melissa Davin and Averi have become close friends, hanging out together, getting ice cream, going shopping and doing various fun activities together. Davin draws inspiration from Averi's bravery and positive outlook in the face of adversity. Averi has made a friend for life in Davin, who accompanies her to her treatments at the hospital.
