Unfortunately, Filer is in the news today for tougher reasons. Last week while at a USTA Level 2 in Scottsdale, Arizona, Filer fell ill and was diagnosed with Glioblastoma Multiforme, an aggressive brain cancer.

A number of families in USTA Midwest have created a fundraising page on GoFundMe to help the Filer family in this difficult time. If you have the means, please consider donating to help the Filers as they weigh different treatments for David.
