Hitting a winner for breast cancer survivors.
Now in its 13th year, TABC has raised more than $100,000 since its inception. Rankine started the organization after an unexpected turn playing in a charity tennis event made her realize she could combine her business degree and her love of tennis for a good cause.
Mammography clinics, research groups, and organizations that support breast cancer survivors have received funds from TABC. One beneficiary, SHARE (www.sharecancersupport.org), has hotlines, support groups, wellness and education programs, and advocacy activities, all free of charge. "We were very fortunate to be a recipient of TABC's efforts. Funds that we receive from organizations like TABC enable us to provide peer support services for people affected by breast cancer to anyone who walks through our door," says executive director Alice Yaker.
"TABC couldn't help groups like SHARE without the support we receive from individuals and companies willing to donate their time, products, and money," says Rankine. Visit www.tennis abc.org to volunteer at an event or make a donation.
