An emotionally riveting story of one wrestling family's refusal to give up, to be able to endure tremendous emotional pain and to keep moving forward toward achieving their ultimate goal:
To care for and to cure their daughter Jessica, who as a normal 18 year old college student has suddenly been placed in a medically induced coma, and to continue to live and love life.
Without dying inside.
One, without the other is just unacceptable.
JohnA must fight to keep living in order to keep his daughter from dying.
In every loss there is a lesson that you need to learn, and one by one when you learn the lessons they will all come together to make you a man.
Twenty-six years ago, JohnA's goal and mission in life was to win a New York State Wrestling Championship.
He committed himself to a lifestyle, made the sacrifices, put in the time, starved himself and even shaved his head; he had the hunger, the desire and the determination.
But he came up short.
For many years it seemed like he did not get a fair exchange for his total dedication to the sport.
That the trade off of what he gave and what he got in return to the sport of wrestling was way out of whack.
Until he had extreme adversity in his life.
The reward that you seek, may not be the reward that you receive...
And slowly but surely, JohnA started to realize how much the sport of wrestling actually gave back to him.
Much more than he ever knew.
When life throws you to your back, you need to know how not to get pinned, to get off of your back and pick yourself up in order to win.
The sport of wrestling provided JohnA with a much greater reward than the one that he sought - To stand on a podium for a few seconds - It provided him with a way to live life.
A belief system that he would use to help him win his ultimate battle in his life - to save his daughter and continue to love life.
A champion is not someone who won his last match of the season, a champion is the person who gives his all in attempting to do so.
What would you do if you were faced with making a choice in life between caring for your child or living and loving life?
I hope you would do what JohnA did - and choose both.
