In case you don't know there's a new federal law - The Family and Medical Leave Act - which protects the legal rights of parents like Nancy Muldenhower. I am fully prepared to make sure that law is enforced. I am also prepared to let the media know that you were threatening to fire Luke Muldenhower's mother while he is fighting for his life.
Wow, er, just hold on for a second will you? I think there's been a big misunderstanding here

Even though this apparently is not a movie produced by Lifetime, "A Champion's Fight" has Lifetime written all over it. It's based on a Lurlene McDaniel story of two teenagers in love, but the young man has cancer. McDaniel has written many novels for teens, often with a spiritual theme.
I can really see this film appealing to a young crowd, as it was intended. It's very sports-oriented - the boy, Luke, is the star quarterback at the high school. Beth Broderick plays the girl's mom, and she's always good, conveying an attorney's sophistication and later, compassion and support. Adrienne Barbeau is Luke's mom.
The story is poignant and also predictable. There really isn't anything exceptional about it, except Barbeau's problems with her employer.
Given all that, I cried like a baby and hated myself.
