About Fighting Back

Fighting Back is a unique wrestling event made possible by the support of local wrestlers, promoters, volunteers, and fans. It’s about all of us coming together to raise awareness and funds for the Canadian Cancer Society, and celebrate the memory of a friend.

On April 1st, 2011, many people involved with the local independent wrestling scene were struck hard when Francois “Phrank” Morin died after a brief but intense battle with cancer. A close and loved friend to some, a colleague to others, and always smiling face to everyone else – Phrank was an important part of many peoples lives. On April 1st, when he passed away, plans approved by Phrank himself, were already in motion for a fundraising event for the Canadian Cancer Society to take place in the summer. Following his death, the event was decided to take place and raise funds in Phrank’s name. Like our inaugural event, our hope is to raise as much money as possible for the Canadian Cancer Society, and join them in the mission to one day eradicate cancer from this earth.
