Cabrini College Hosts "Hoops From the Heart" Clinic

From the Cabrini College official athletic website.

Temple coach Fran Dunphy will be the featured speaker at the 6th annual Hoops-from-the-Heart basketball clinic for boys and girls in grades 1-8, hosted by Cabrini College on Martin Luther King Day, Jan. 15, and benefitting needy families in Delaware County.

The clinic, conducted by the coaches and players on both Cabrini teams, will run from 9 a.m. to noon at Nerney Field House, located in the college's Dixon Center. Drop-off and check-in will begin at 8:15 a.m. Each child will receive a free Hoops-from-the-Heart T-shirt.

The $30 fee will go directly to the Community Action Agency of Delaware County, a nonprofit organization that has provided housing, job training and other services to the needy since 1979. Last year's clinic, attended by nearly 250 area children, raised $5,300 for the agency.

"This is a way to raise money for a great cause and give young kids something fun to do on a day off from school," said Cabrini women's coach Bobbi Morgan, a former Haverford High coach who founded the clinic in 2002. Morgan will run the event along with Cabrini men's coach Matthew Macciocca, a former Radnor High star.

The clinic, co-sponsored by the Radnor Township and Haverford Township recreation departments, will group players by age and ability and provide instruction in such basketball fundamentals as passing, shooting, defense, ballhandling, rebounding and team play.

Players are encouraged to bring one non-perishable canned good for the Community Action Agency. The organization runs homeless shelters and provides other social services for the poor, including employment counseling and domestic-abuse counseling.

Common Breast Cancer Myths

The first myth pertaining to this disease is that it only affects women.

Second myth that is associated with this disease is that if one has found a lump during an examination, it is cancer.

Third is that it is solely hereditary

The next myth associated with breast cancer is downright ridiculous. Would you believe, that in this day and age, some individuals still think that breast cancer is contagious?

Conversely, some individuals foolishly believe that breast size determines whether or not one gets cancer.

Finally, another myth that is associated with this disease is that it only affects older people. This is not so. Although the chance of getting breast cancer increases with age, women as young as 18 have been diagnosed with the disease.
