This senior from Shades Valley High School is a *** walking miracle. Kalia Copeland’s high school journey was difficult and sometimes unbearable since her first year, my mother fell very ill. Um, ninth grade, we got busy, she had a *** brain tumor. So after that, she had ***, she had brain surgery and everything. So I was taking care of her in between and so I was trying to take care of school. I was taking care of her and working two jobs at the time. Then she and her mother were involved in a terrible accident during her 10th year. And during Copeland’s junior year his mom had a stroke *** was probably one of the hardest things we dealt with because honestly that year was my last real conversation with my mother that I had, you know, without her has, you know, a lot of memory loss and stuff. But I still focused on school and my jobs that I was working at the time to take care of myself and my mother. And then last year, she faced another hurdle. last August. Copeland was diagnosed with COVID-19 when she was sent home. I was coughing up blood and I knew that wasn’t, you know, normal. I thought that was normal with Covid, but it wasn’t normal, you know, for me. So I keep coughing up blood days and days after that. So today I went to see if I was covid free to take another covid test to make sure I was ok to get back to school and work. Um They said they had to do a *** diagnosis on Copeland says the doctors told her she had blood clots in her lungs and she was also told there was a *** tumor under a blood clot ***. Doctors later diagnosed Copeland with stage 2 lung cancer where she had to go through several rounds of chemotherapy and radiation, I think that’s probably one of the toughest, no treatment. I had to do one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to go through. I was on the ground all the time. I was weak, I couldn’t do much. As for my mother, there was not much I could do for myself. Copeland overcame that hurdle two weeks ago when she learned she was cancer free. And despite her trials and tribulations, Copeland will graduate from high school this month and then head to Texas Southern University Kellie. Copeland is in the top 10% of his promotion. She has a GPA of ***4.2 and has won over ***million dollars in scholarships. I’m Fred Davenport’s WV Tm 13
