by Katy Jones — last modified Dec 20, 2013 09:23 AM
On December 7, 2013, America’s No. 1 tennis player, John Isner, held his annual charity event, the Ebix Charity Challenge, contributing $75,000 to UNC Lineberger

All proceeds from the 4th Annual Ebix Charity Challenge benefitted the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center. Isner’s mother, Karen, was successfully treated by her UNC Cancer Care team during her two battles with colon cancer.

Isner was joined by former World No. 1 and future Hall of Famer Andy Roddick with Justin Gimelstob, a former ATP Player and current broadcaster for Tennis Channel, serving as the event emcee.
