Serving Breast Cancer Patients, Survivors and Family Members on Long Island
The United Breast Cancer Foundation (UBCF) is a national non-profit organization, founded in 2000 and headquartered in Huntington, NY. UBCF’s mission is to make a positive difference in the lives of those affected by breast cancer.
Thanks to our partnership with Good360, UBCF has connected with outstanding retailers to provide high-quality, high-value products to our much deserving clients. On May 20th 2017, UBCF hosted our annual Mattress Donation Event at the International Warehouse Group in Melville, NY. UBCF provided 200 Tempur-Pedic® mattresses of various sizes to women, men, and children directly impacted by breast cancer. We also provided high quality clothing, shoes, personal care products and coffee makers from such respected retailers as J-Jill, Anthropologie, Shoes of Prey, Burt’s Bees, Honest Company, Keurig and Mr. Coffee.
There were many sincerely appreciative clients sharing their words of gratitude during our event. One of our clients, Eileen stated, “You all are like angels. If there is someone who doesn’t believe in spirits here, I tell them to come down to UBCF and see all the God’s work [UBCF] does, I have met angels in human form – thank you!” We were all deeply moved by Eileen’s kind words – they brought us to tears. Eileen has had trouble sleeping since she was a child and she came to our store to pick up some household items she informed us that since receiving her Tempur-Pedic® mattress, she has slept through the night for the first time in forever!
Many other clients were also ecstatic about the Tempur-Pedic® mattresses. Catherine shared how UBCF’s donations couldn’t have come at a better time. She picked up her mattress on Saturday and had surgery for the following Tuesday. Several days after her surgery,
Catherine called to let us know how amazing the mattress has been in her recovery process and how thankful she is for UBCF’s help. The same went for Allison who said “I cannot thank you enough for this wonderful program. It could not have come at a much more needed time – with sincerest thanks.” The quotes go on with such thoughtful, caring words about all the help UBCF offers.
All the weeks of planning, organizing, heavy lifting and hard worked paid-off through the hundreds of smiles, hugs and tears of joy from our happy clients. UBCF supports our clients both physically and emotionally, including facilitating a good night’s sleep which is so important to our client’s well-being.
Thanks to our partnership with Good360 and our wonderful retailers, we continue to truly make a positive, lasting impact in the lives of so many deserving people.
