GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) A West Michigan woman is sharing her story of cancer and recovery in a new film called “A Life Rewritten.”

Marissa was diagnosed with Acute Myelogenous Leukemia as a teenager. She underwent a bone marrow transplant and other surgeries and treatments, including a hip replacement.

Our Daily Bread contacted Freyling about their desire to tell her story. The organization made the film “A Life Rewritten,” which is available to rent, download, or buy online.

Freyling is now finishing her Master’s Degree in counseling at Grand Rapids Theological Seminary. She is also the Volunteer Coordinator at Equest Center for Therapeutic Riding. She started there as a volunteer to combine her love of horses and to give back. Equest Center always welcomes volunteers of all ages. There is a volunteer orientation on Saturday, October 16 from 10 a.m. to noon. Register online to attend.
