Kicking Cancer: Caleb Frye

Posted:

Caleb Frye was like most other kids, spending most of his time playing sports. But at age 7, something seemed to be a little off for Caleb. After a few incidents, Frye and his parents  went to a doctor, who gave them the bad news: Caleb had cancer.

Diagnosed with large cell lymphoma, a cancer of the lymphatic system, Caleb had to begin extensive chemotherapy sessions on a cancer that was very advanced. Frye says his family leaned on their faith in that time, and miracles began to happen.

After the first chemo treatment, 90 percent of the cancer had already been killed. By the fifth session, the cancer was basically gone.

It took a few years, but Caleb returned to athletics when he was 10. In high school, he focused on baseball and football. That was when Bluefield College assistant coach Mike Compton found out about his leg. Compton offered Caleb a spot to kick for the Rams, and the rest is history.

While losing a game may seem like the end of the world for some of his teammates, Caleb knows the truth: what doesn't kill you will only make you stronger. He's living proof.
