05 Sep Tempur+Sealy Event Provides Breast Cancer Survivors With a Day of Joy
Organization: United Breast Cancer Foundation
Lives Impacted: 442
Everyone understands that being diagnosed with breast cancer can be a scary, painful, expensive and traumatic experience; however, only those who have actually suffered through it truly know how difficult it is. Putting the body through chemotherapy, radiation, and surgeries can cause just as much pain and exhaustion as the cancer itself. Now imagine going through all of this even more tired than necessary because you have an old lumpy mattress at home and you can’t afford a new one. It’s easy to take for granted how restorative a good night’s sleep can be. Breast cancer patients need rest to battle this disease and never take a good night of sleep for granted.
With help from Good360 and Tempur+Sealy, United Breast Cancer Foundation has donated hundreds of mattresses to breast cancer patients and survivors who truly need and deserve the restorative benefits of sleep. We understand the importance of rest and have worked together to help those who can’t help themselves. On July 21, 2018 UBCF hosted our 3rd annual New York Tempur-Pedic ® Mattress Event. UBCF donated 264 mattresses to breast cancer patients, survivors and their children, supporting a total of 442 people. In addition to Tempur-Pedic ® mattresses, recipients received Pink Bags full of amazing and helpful items such as clothing, shoes, beauty & personal care items, hair tools, and small kitchen appliances. The recipients were all very grateful for the donations they received. We received many messages of thanks like the one below from Aida:
“I cannot thank you enough for everything! Saturday was so well organized I was able to make the 6-hour trip to pick up the bed and the other goodies and still get to work on time at 1pm. The beds are AMAZING! We haven’t slept this well in at least a decade. The clothes were an incredible surprise and I can’t wait to wear them and Burt’s Bees lotion totally love them. This morning before I go to work I’m trying out that George Forman. What an incredible gift. Thank you so much for all you did to make this happy and special thanks to the companies who made this happen! Now I really will be able to say I can’t wait to get home to sleep in my own bed! It is really greatly appreciated. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You.”
It is clients like Aida that make all of the hard work that goes into the events worth it. Everyone was so kind and appreciative! This was the third mattress event we’ve held in New York and its success is due in no small part to Good360 and Tempur+Sealy . We look forward to holding more mattress events in the future with the help of Good360 and Tempur+Sealy!
