information-technology, international activities including
study abroad programs and human resources services, said
CIC Director Roger Clark said.
"We coordinate and direct and encourage and facilitate
cooperation at all levels at those universities, except intercol-
legiate athletics," Clark said.
The last body to join CIC was Penn State University in the
early '90s, Clark said, concurrent with its membership in the
Big Ten. Penn State is the eleventh and last school to join the
' Ten.
"It has traditionally been the Big Ten universities,' Clark
said. "The membership is over 90 percent the same as the
Big Ten athletic association."
There is no structured application process to join CIC,
Clark said, but Norte Dame administrators "have not
inquired about joining CIC.
"Obviously they have made inquiries of the faculty since
the senate voted a few nights ago ... It's certainly a possibil-
ity" Clark said.
Although many Norte Dame athletic teams currently are
members of the Big East Conference, which includes
iversity of Miami (Fla.), University of Pittsburgh, Temple
and Boston College among its members, the Irish football
team is still independent from any conference.
Even if Notre Dame joins the Big Ten, its football team
would not participate as a conference member until 2006
because of contracts held by NBC for exclusive broadcasting
rights to home games. The Big Ten is contracted with ABC
for broadcasting rights of football games.
"We have a contract now that would not change," said Ed
Markey, NBC's vicepresident for sports press. "We have
ays said that we value our relationship with Norte Dame
this contract has been very successful for us.
"We would renew it in a minute if we had the chance"
Markey said.

'U' student overcomes
disease to walk again

By Adam Cohen
Daily Staff Reporter
She was 16 years old when a doctor looked her
squarely in the face and told her she would never walk
again without the assistance of a cane or a brace.
But this Sunday, Therese Franco, Rackham stu-
dent of ergonomics and industrial hygiene, plans to
run in the Festival of Lights 5K Run/Walk at
Domino's Farms.
"She's our little star" said Nursing sophomore
Amanda Dean, one of Franco's roommates.
Franco, a 15-year-old high-school student in 1991,
woke up one Friday the 13th morning in September
and attempted to walk after getting out of bdi.
"I fell flat on my face" Franco said.
Without any explanation for the fall, she was
immediately taken to an emergency room. She
received crutches, but doctors did not give a diagno-
sis until two months later.
Finally, she was diagnosed with Reflex
Sympathetic Dystrophy. Franco could not use her
left leg for four months from the time of the incident.
Pulled out of school, Franco studied at home and
started treatment with nerve blocks. It did not work.
On New Year's Eve, 1991, surgeons removed part
of the left lumbar sympathetic ganglia - eight inch-
es of nerve near her lower back. "It was a pretty dra-
matic treatment," Franco said.
The doctors were very encouraged by her
improved circulation, but growth had been stunted in
her leg from past problems and orthopedic difficul-

ties still persisted.
"The doctors told me I could keep my leg, but
would always need a cane or a brace," Franco said.
"That's when they told me I would never walk un-
aided again."
After much treatment and physical therapy, doc-
tors came to the conclusion she would be alright, but
could not "be a weekend warrior or play for the
NFL," Franco said. "I was pretty disappointed
because I had been figure skating for 10 years.
She started swimming and eventually joined her
high school team and then a recreation league called
United States Master's Swimming.
"I had fitness goals, not competitive goals,"
Franco said of USMS.
While swimming, Franco developed back pain
and physical therapy did not help. Other treatments
made her problems worse, Franco said.
Trying to put an end to her problems, University
Pediatric/Orthopedic surgeon Robert Hesinger and
Robert Nobler, a neurosurgeon at Thomas Jefferson
University, performed a posterior tibialias tendon
transfer with achilles tendon lengthening on Franco.
With continued therapy and the help of the
surgery, Franco walked across her graduation stage
un-aided and on Aug. 2, 1998, she could run again.
"It was the most liberating thing," Franco said. "To
be able to just walk out of my door and be able to run
- it was just amazing, I couldn't stop laughing"
Franco ran a 5K at the Cold Turkey Trot at
Michigan State University with friend Todd Cisler.
