    Default Adam Frey Website

    Hey guys and gals,

    Adam and I just finished making a website where you can follow his updates on his blog as well as make online donations by clicking on the "Donations" page.

    http://www.adamfrey.us (both .com and .net were taken. Grrr).

    Feel free to leave him comments and what not, and please post the address on any message boards or pass it along to any members of the wrestling community who might be interested in following the updates or any that might be willing to donate.

    Thanks so much!!

    DH, I gotta say, you are pretty amazing. To get up a website that quick, and having it look so professional, even if it wasn't for such a good cause, is awesome. Throw in the fact that you're helping out a great guy, it's that much better. Great job.
    You do the math..... I'll do the alfredo!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!

    Good job, Danielle. I put a post about it on my blog, and Twist already had posted it on IllinoisMatmen.

    I think it is unbelievable how the wrestling community is lining up behind Adam. It is wonderful to see how, despite whatever has gone on the message boards this year, everyone is closing ranks behind him and his family at this time. Being a CU Grad Student, It is just wonderful to see the wrestling community doing this. Say what you want about wrestlers and their fans (and I have heard it all) but we take care of our own. Our prayers and thoughts are with Adam hoping for t he best!

    Thanks so much! I'm a web designer so getting a site like that up is pretty easy -- it's not from scratch, I just customized a wordpress blog for him, so that is a heck of a lot less time consuming than doing one of my custom websites that I completely build from the ground up.

    Plus Adam is a friend of mine and was there for me when I was going through a rough situation, so you gotta be there to help your friends!

    This afternoon is dragging by, just waiting to hear what happened with the biopsy...

    OK I just talked to Adam. Poor kid was in the hospital all day.

    The preliminary results from the biopsy indicate that it' probably Hodgkins disease. Adam said that this is a best case scenario, as it will probably be 6 months to a year of aggressive chemo.

    He will get the full results of the biopsy on Monday so more info will be available then.

    I googled Hodgkins disease since I don't know anything about it and this is what it said:

    Hodgkin's disease — also known as Hodgkin's lymphoma — is a cancer of the lymphatic system, which is part of your immune system.


    In Hodgkin's disease, cells in the lymphatic system grow abnormally and may spread beyond the lymphatic system. As Hodgkin's disease progresses, it compromises your body's ability to fight infection.


    Hodgkin's disease is one of two common types of cancers of the lymphatic system. Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, the other type, is far more common. Hodgkin's disease is named after the British physician Thomas Hodgkin, who first described the disease in 1832 and noted characteristics that distinguish it from other lymphomas.


    Advances in diagnosis, staging and treatment of Hodgkin's disease have helped to make this once uniformly fatal disease highly treatable with the potential for full recovery.

    I am pretty sure that Blatnick had Hogkins.

    Wow. This really hits home, as I was diagnosed with Hodgkins in January, and am undergoing chemo right now. It is apparently the most common form of cancer for younger folks to get, and very very treatable these days.

    I am just learning myself about all of this (I've had 5 of a scheduled 12 chemo treatments), but if Adam would like to talk to someone who is going through something similar, I'd be glad to pass along my e-mail address.

    Drop him an email directly -- awf6@cornell.edu

    He just called me back, apparently the hospital got back in touch with him and said that it was a string of hodgkin's that they have never seen before. So I guess that usually Hodgkin's is 90% curable, but the fact that they haven't seen this before sounds bad. That is just the hospital in Ithaca though, perhaps the one when he gets home to Pittsburgh will have seen it before.

    He is driving home to Pittsburgh tonight and he starts chemo next week.

    I also forgot to mention that he said that the thing in his lung was just a spot and not cancerous (he probably fell really hard sometime and it left a mark). However, the tumor in his kidney is the size of a fist and the one in his liver is the size of a nickel.
