Teen Paralyzed By Drunk Driver Still Competes With Cheer Squad

Sarah Frei had her whole life ahead of her. The possibilities were endless until a car accident at the age of 17 changed everything. But she turned tragedy into a pom-pom shaking triumph. This teen paralyzed by a drunk driver still competes with the cheer squad.

It was a warm day in July when Sarah was out with her friends. After a fun weekend at the lake, they were driving back home.

Suddenly, they were hit head on by a drunk driver. The car became a hunk of metal wreckage that trapped four lives inside. Others who had witnessed the crash were put there by God’s grace and timing because they had a satellite phone and were able to get help for the teens.

Sarah says she doesn’t remember much from the crash or the weeks following. Within the first four days of the crash, Sarah endured nine surgeries including the amputation of both her legs.

Sarah found herself in a dark place as she mourned the loss of her legs and the ability to climb trees, run, or even dance. Through perseverance, God’s grace, and endurance, Sarah let go of the accident and the loss of her legs.

Instead, she focused on what “could be.” She could still be a college student. She could still be a good friend, daughter, and sister. She could also be a cheerleader!

Through the help of her community and her loyal team, Sarah came back to school to compete with her team and this video will leave you stunned. Go ahead and give Sarah a shout out and praise God for that matter too!

“I can do all this through him who gives me strength.” Philippians 4:13
