Madisen Abramson, trying to find the cause for respiratory issues underwent a CAT Scan, what was thought to be a routine procedure turned out to be an inoperable brain tumor. After receiving Chemotherapy, Madisen became allergic to the treatment and, Chemotherapy was stopped.
Madisen’s treatment plan has been placed on a monitored status, meaning that she now undergoes full sedation and gets an MRI done annually. Life for Madisen isn’t any different than any other 12 year old girl, other than her yearly MRI. She hasn’t been slowed down by her tumor and is excelling in school and enjoys spending time with friends.
Madisen is one of the lucky ones, there are many others who haven’t been as fortunate. She is a face of survival and hope and has become an ambassador for Brain Tumor Survivors both young and old.
To date Madisen's Match has raised over $950,000 to benefit national and Southwest Florida based pediatric and adult cancer treatment charities.

How did your time as a competitive tennis player help with all you're doing at CDT?
Without developing a passion for tennis at a young age, I would have never found CDT. For that, I am very grateful. Tennis has taught me many valuable lessons, you can’t be afraid to work hard to accomplish goals, sometimes no matter how hard you work, you might not win, and how it’s important to work with your team. Those lessons are so important in life, not just on a tennis court. I try to carry many of those lessons into my work each day.
What's something you love about CDT?
The people that make up the company. I have met some of my best friends through coaching alongside them on a tennis court. Everyone truly cares about one another; you can’t find that type of atmosphere everywhere. I also love that we’re always trying to grow and evolve as a company with new ideas- whether that is new drills in a clinic or a new concept in the company as a whole, that is so important to stay relevant in an ever-changing tennis industry.
What’s “CDT Experience” and, what's something that makes it unique?
We try to be the ultimate tennis experience for all of our members and guests on and off the court, and we always try to combine that with the highest level of service imaginable. We launched an exclusive member-only program called the Experience Rewards Program in 2017. We have since opened it to the public. In addition to world-class coaching, this membership rewards program offers many off-court benefits such as discounts on travel, exclusive tennis tips and video courses, podcasts, breaking industry news, and revolutionary access to players and tournaments. We are extremely proud to be able to offer this level of service to our members, both on an off the court.

We would love for everyone to become part of the Cliff Drysdale Tennis Family.
What are a few lessons you've learned by hosting the experience about helping others?
One of my favorite parts of my job is helping our guests plan a tennis vacation for themselves, friends, or family. I find this so rewarding. I truly want to make sure they have a completely customized and amazing tennis vacation at any of our facilities. These guests are taking time out of their busy lives to play tennis with us, so we feel honored to have them visit our camps.
