"Basketball has brought so many good people into my life and the platform it has given me has enabled me to share the best parts of it. In high school I used to stop by my grandmother, Anna Gallagher's house, before Friday night games in the Catholic League. It was a ritual of sorts and only a few years later, she passed after fighting cancer. Because of the leadership of coaches around the country, and especially here in Philadelphia, I started with Coaches vs. Cancer almost 20 years ago and it has been a part of my stops at Pennsbury, Bristol and Conwell Egan. The game gives us an opportunity to reach so many people, and our involvement with C vs. C is the highlight of every year. I would really like to thank my staff, the supportive administration at Pennsbury and especially my family- because they support this on every level. " - Frank Sciolla
