A Utah teenager’s story of resilience has gone
viral after she attended her homecoming less
than two months following a horrific car crash.
On July 30, 17-year-old Sarah Frei was returning home
from Bear Lake with her friends when a truck heading
the opposite way turned the corner and hit them.
The crash caused Frei, who was sitting in
the back passenger seat, to suffer internal
bleeding, paralyzing her from the waist down.
Despite losing both her legs as a result of the crash,
the teenager maintained a positive outlook. Her
friends tried their best to lift her spirits, too — .
in September, Frei’s cheer team came together to
organize a homecoming of their own after the pandemic
forced their school to cancel the official event.
One of the senior’s friends, Andrew,
then arrived with a poster and some
treats to ask Frei out to homecoming.
“my mom explained they wanted me to have
them join all their activities virtually and
I could participate through FaceTime”.
“I’ve always had a very supportive family and
group of friends, and I’m so glad I’ve known
they’ve been here for me through this whole time”
