Carly Faye DeLong

New Years Eve of 2016, Carly was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL).
Throughout treatment, she refused to be defined by her diagnosis.
She continued to attend class and volleyball practices whenever possible.
Even when she couldn’t play, she traveled with the team, determined to make it back on the court.
With every mis-step and set back, she came back stronger and more determined than before. This same determination to succeed and push through boundaries and obstacles was the way Carly lived her life even before her cancer diagnosis. She was always setting high goals and pursuing them with passion.
Carly never gave up, she never gave into her diagnosis.
On September 23, 2017, Carly’s battle with ALL ended, but the legacy she left behind will carry on because of the imprint she left on so many lives.

This is how we plan to do it.
