Although my plans of playing college volleyball and having a carefree senior year of high school came to a screeching halt, I knew God had bigger plans.

1 in 285 children in the U.S. will be diagnosed with some form of cancer before the age of 20*. Carly Freels knows how it feels to be a part of this statistic.

Freels, a survivor of Hodgkin’s lymphoma, was just seventeen years old when her world came crashing down. In her new book, “When Faith > Fear…” Freels offers hope to young readers who are battling cancer, provides insight to readers who are walking alongside a friend or family member with the disease and helps restore the faith of all who are affected through her firsthand account of her battle.

“There are very few success stories written on youth cancer,” Freels said. “Nearly everyone is affected by cancer in some way, and I believe this book will not only help those going through treatment, but anyone who desires to better understand what cancer patients go through on a day-to-day basis.”

Freels is now cancer-free and a full time student at Texas A&M University. “Although my plans of playing college volleyball and having a carefree senior year of high school came to a screeching halt, I knew God had bigger plans,” Freels said. “I now understand that I’ve been called to share my story and provide hope to others in situations similar to mine.”
