November is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month in Metuchen

| No Comments

On October 20th, the Metuchen Borough Council presented a proclamation declaring the month of November as Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month in Metuchen.  In commemoration, purple ribbons will adorn the trees along Main Street in downtown Metuchen.

Borough Council President Jay Muldoon presented a proclamation to Dr. Deborah Mohammed Spigner, Beatrice Zatorski and Grace Shackney whose husbands lost their lives to this disease.  Dr. Spigner thanked the Mayor and Council on behalf of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network.  She explained that hundreds of towns around the country do this each year.  The proclamations are collected by volunteers and given to congress as evidenced of the advocacy for finding a cure for this dreadful disease. 

Dr. Spigner said, "We hope by working together with the Mayor and Council we will be able to continue to raise awareness, support patients and their families, and raise funds to find the cure." 

In addition to having the purple ribbons along Main Street, Mayor Vahalla and several Council members volunteered to put purple ribbons on their lawns in solidarity.  Anyone interested in doing the same can contact Grace Shackney at 732-549-3294 or graceshackney@gmail.com

snyb-v23.pngA local parent who is also a long-time sports coach sent me the following essay from Steve Nash's Youth Basketball Blog. She had recently witnessed a disturbing interaction at a game:

"I was recently at Charles field standing in between a Rec Field Hockey game and a travel soccer game.   One very young travel soccer player said to his teammate "Do you know why they call is Rec? Because they play like a wreck."  It struck me as so sad but also so wrong.  What are we doing to our kids?"

Have you seen this kind of action on the field? Does your child no longer participate in sports because of this kind of callous treatment? Are you a coach? How do you try to encourage kids without making them feel lessened by their inability to participate at certain levels? Read the article here by Steve Nash -- comment here or on Facebook or Twitter. MM would love to know what you think!
