Home > Donation Event > UBCF to Provide Disaster Relief to Breast Cancer Patients, Survivors and Immediate Family Members

Items include Tempur-Pedic® Mattresses, household goods, personal care items, clothing and baby items.

The United Breast Cancer Foundation (UBCF) is pleased to announce its first disaster relief event for breast cancer patients and survivors. The event, scheduled for December 9, 2017 in Doral, Florida, will provide assistance to women, men and children affected by breast cancer and the recent natural disasters in Florida, including Hurricane Irma.

UBCF has partnered with Good360 and Tempur-Pedic® to donate high quality twin, full and queen-size Tempur-Pedic® mattresses. In addition to the new mattresses, UBCF is giving away other household, personal care products, clothing and baby items generously donated by Bed Bath & Beyond and Buy Buy Baby. Other donors include: Keurig, Nike, Burt’s Bees, First Aid Beauty and The Honest Company.

Cancer care is expensive and a large percentage of UBCF’s clients come from low-income households. Often between medical bills and every day expenses UBCF’s clients struggle to afford basic household items or a new mattress. The added stress of rebuilding after a natural disaster makes these purchases even more difficult and yet much more important. All items are available to breast cancer patients, survivors and their children 18 years or younger. Patients and survivors are welcome to travel from surrounding states. The application is available at https://www.ubcf.org/disaster-relief/

“I speak for my entire team when I say that UBCF is truly honored to be supporting the courageous women, men and children of Florida who are not only dealing with breast cancer but are now forced to rebuild their lives,” said UBCF Executive Director, Ms. Stephanie Mastroianni. “Providing a good night’s sleep with a new Tempur-Pedic® mattress is the least we can do.”

UBCF thanks Tempur-Pedic®, Good360, Bed Bath & Beyond and Buy Buy Baby, and CustomSpace warehousing. UBCF’s next Tempur-Pedic® mattress event is tentatively scheduled for Spring, 2018 in Melville, NY.
