MS FOUNDATION OF THE CAYMAN ISLANDS
The MS Foundation of the Cayman Islands was founded by Alyssa Christian, after being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) in 2015. The 3-year journey to receiving this diagnosis was not only painful but emotionally tolling. Alyssa became aware of the large community of MS patients in Cayman and knew something needed to be done. Support is crucial, both financially and emotionally to not only MS patients, but to their families as well.
This is how The MS Foundation of the Cayman Islands was formed, in October 2016. The MS Foundation is committed to not only providing the support needed to patients, but to spreading awareness about the disease.

“The MS Foundation is committed to not only providing the support needed to patients, but to spreading awareness about the disease. Currently, there is no cure for MS. It is a lifelong disease. We hope one day for a cure, but until then, we will remain MS strong and continue to support our local community of patients and their families.”
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.

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.
