SONDay Monday Screening: Travis Freeman
After viewing the film that was inspired by the life of Dr. Freeman, the audience asked numerous questions, purchased copies of Dr. Freeman’s autobiography LIGHTS OUT: LIVING IN A SIGHTLESS WORLD, and shared their amazement at all he has accomplished despite his disability.
The surgery that saved Freeman’s life as he battled Cavernous Sinus Thrombosis also robbed him of his eyesight at 12 years old. Freeman credits his relationship with God for the consistently positive outlook he has applied to life. That journey includes playing football throughout junior high and high school, serving as manager for the University of Kentucky football team, earning his Doctorate of Philosophy from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, and now serving as adjunct professor for University of the Cumberlands in Kentucky. He and his wife, Stephanie, make their home in Eastern Kentucky.
The SONDay Monday program features one film screening per month (excluding summer) at the luxury Paragon Theater on Vanderbilt Beach Road in Naples, FL. Screenings always take place on a Monday night at 6:30pm. SON provides a film and someone associated with that film to be present at the screening for Q&A afterward. The program raises awareness for SON, its mission, and media worth watching.
