This week, The Life of Dad Show is dedicating this episode to Holden Flynn. One of Life of Dad’s earliest and greatest supporters, Trey Flynn just lost his son, Holden to Congenital Heart Defects (CHD). Our thoughts and prayers are with this excellent father and his family as we all remember and cherish “Tin Man Flynn”.
Our special guest this week is Phoenix Suns power forward, Channing Frye. He couldn’t wait for this year’s NBA season to begin. Last year after a preseason physical, Channing found out that he had an enlarged heart. Frye was told he couldn’t play. It was tough news for him to digest, but he didn’t let that slow him down.
In his year hiatus from the NBA, Frye spent time with his family, did some traveling, and had time to do some personal reflection. Frye also started up the “One Heart” T-shirt campaign for his foundation, the Frye Family Foundation. Proceeds from the sale of these shirts will go to two charities, the Phoenix Children’s Hospital and Portland’s Providence “Play Smart” Youth Heart Screenings. You can purchase the shirts here!
Channing spoke with about his time off the court, his preparation for this year, fatherhood, and we even chatted about his sneaker collection.
