Cancer StrongHER Tennis – Free Class!

Overcoming a cancer diagnosis is something worth celebrating, and what better way to celebrate and form lifelong friendships than with others who have gone through the same thing. Our featured community event for the month of June is a free tennis class for women cancer survivors, hosted by Cancer StrongHER.

Here is the event post via EventBrite:

In partnership with The Birch Racquet and Lawn Club and Keller Alliance Tennis Charter (KATCH), Cancer StrongHER is excited to bring free tennis classes to female cancer survivors! Classes are for female survivors of ALL cancers and are completely free-of-charge. Whether you are a beginner, an experienced player, or somewhere in between, we have the session just for you. We will provide the balls for everyone and loaner racquets for beginners. If you have a racquet, please bring it. Make sure to bring water and dress appropriately for the weather. Please watch our Facebook page and website closely for weather cancellations. To adhere to social distancing protocol, we are limited to 8 beginner players and 8 experienced players, so please reserve your spot quickly via Eventbrite, and please only register once per person. If you find the class is full, you will be placed on a waiting list to fill any cancellations. Summer classes will take place indoors. Let’s play some tennis! Read more

Community event time! Coming up in September, there is a great community event going on right here in Arlington, Texas, to promote women’s cancer awareness and bring hope to the community. The first annual Pink Teal Luncheon is an opportunity for guests to hear about survivors and their journey with cancer. The goal is to make this an annual event raising awareness of cancers that most often affect women – Breast and Gynecologic Cancers. 1 in 8 U.S. women will develop breast cancer over the course of her lifetime and 1 out of 100 women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer by age 70. Though it is less common than breast cancer, ovarian cancer causes more deaths than any other cancer of the female reproductive system.
 
 
You’re invited to come participate in the inspiring dialogue between two amazing survivors – Shannon Miller, Olympian & ovarian cancer survivor and local coach, Sam Morrow, breast cancer survivor.
