Dear Platform Tennis Community,
On behalf of my wife, Nancy, and the entire McAvoy family, thank you very much for all your support over the past four months.

Since my Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma diagnosis in November last year, the outpouring of love and positive energy has been inspiring. As I have told several friends,

I never felt alone during all of my treatments, including my 17-day stay at the spa in the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. The doctors there had never seen someone respond to treatment and recover from treatment more quickly than me and when I returned home on March 10th, I began my recovery process to get back into the game – which is still ongoing but feels great!

Given my ongoing recovery, I am pleased to be able to step back in to “active duty” with the APTA, effective Friday, April 1st. [enlarge image to read the full letter]
