GO DOWN SWINGING is a film based on a true story about the dynamic, larger than life personality of one the Nation’s greatest wrestlers, Adam Frey.
Adam was a two-time national champion wrestler at the Blair Academy. Upon graduation, he chose Cornell University where he could continue to pursue his dreams to win an NCAA championship and an Olympic gold medal.
Soon after the NCAA tournament, Frey walked away from a car accident that should have killed him. A precautionary CAT scan revealed a rare form of testicular cancer and tumors in his liver, kidneys and lungs. Thus began the toughest match of his life.
Great inspiration comes from how he faced the disease head-on. With his mother Cindy by his side every day, he underwent several phases of grueling chemotherapy, but kept his chin up, wrote a daily blog of his travails and was determined to spread hope to others.
Putting aside his own pain and suffering, he and Cindy, started the Adam Frey Foundation to provide financial support to others battling this terrible disease.
With his life-long training as an elite wrestler and an unbreakable faith in God, Adam said from the very beginning, ‘I will go down swinging' and set forth to pursue his real purpose in this life.
