GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) A special event is connecting people through one woman’s story. The movie “A Life Rewritten” tells the story of West Michigan woman Marissa Freyling. She 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, which resulted in the movie “A Life Rewritten.”

Freyling is a volunteer at Equest Center for Therapeutic Riding. She started there to combine her love of horses and to give back.

“A Life Rewritten” will be aired at Celebration! Cinema North on Tuesday, March 15 at 6:30 p.m. The film will be followed by a panel discussion with Freyling and some of her doctors. Freyling hopes the event can offer hope and encouragement by allowing people to share their stories.

Tickets are $5 and must be purchased in advance.
