About Madisen’s Match
Duane Chaney established Madisen’s Match in 2008 after his 3-year-old niece Madisen Abramson was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor. Inspired by Madisen and determined to help others, Chaney created Madisen’s Match to use tennis as a way to raise funds for pediatric and adult cancer charities. To date, the event has raised more than $650,000 to benefit national and Southwest Florida based charities like Barbara’s Friends-The Golisano Children’s Hospital Cancer Center Fund, the Brain Tumor Navigator Program at the Regional Cancer Center, the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation, and the Tim and Tom Gullikson Foundation.
