UNC star Jessica Breland battles cancer

Jessica Breland figures any day is a good day after spending the past six months fighting Hodgkin's lymphoma. So the chilly rain pouring down outside the Smith Center yesterday couldn't wash the big smile off the face of Breland, a North Carolina standout. "I'm just grateful to be able to be healthy right now and to walk around," Breland said. "I can't wait to get back on the court. I'm feeling pretty good, real good." (Winston-Salem Journal)
