Among the worthiest

Remember child tennis star Andrea Jaeger? In 1980, at fifteen years of age, she became the youngest player ever to be seeded in Wimbledon history. She went on to have a terrific career, reaching a world number 2 ranking and reaching the finals of all four Grand Slam tournaments. However, her life since retirement has dwarfed her accomplishments on the tennis court. Her Little Star Foundation has helped countless children, many of them cancer patients, around the world. This article in last year’s USA Today details her selfless devotion to others. Compared to some of the notable athletes and coaches in the news today, her example is a breath of fresh air. If you’re looking for a charitable cause you can trust, this one seems to be a winner.
