HUNTINGTON STATION, N.Y. (PRWEB) JUNE 14, 2019
United Breast Cancer Foundation (UBCF) announces an additional Pennsylvania Tempur-Pedic® Mattress & Pink Bag Event® scheduled for Saturday, July 13th. UBCF is thrilled to return to the “City of Brotherly Love” to support additional women, men and children directly impacted by breast cancer. This second event was added after an overwhelming response to the Tempur-Pedic® Mattress & Pink Bag Event® scheduled for June 15th. News outlets 6 ABC Action News Philadelphia, Northeast Times and WDEL 101.7 ran pieces on the event and several stations plan to cover the event live this Saturday including 6 ABC Action News Philadelphia, NBC 10 Philadelphia and Fox 29 Philadelphia.
UBCF continues to partner with Good360 to provide Tempur-Pedic® mattresses at no cost to breast cancer patients and survivors. The trusted Tempur-Pedic® Mattress brand offers the comfort and support necessary to promote a good night’s sleep, something that is vitally important to the healing process and improving the quality of life for those touched by breast cancer. In addition to the Tempur-Pedic® mattresses, UBCF will provide Pink Bags filled with wonderful goodies such as clothing and personal care products from trusted name brands. UBCF anticipates distributing over $3.5 million in donated items to those in need. This event marks a special milestone for UBCF as the greatest valued event in their history.
The tight-knit Philadelphia and surrounding communities have responded with a resounding “YES” to attending UBCF’s Jun 15th event. UBCF never turns anyone away, therefore, to accommodate hundreds of applicants, UBCF will host a second event on Saturday, July 13th. UBCF will give away twin and queen size mattresses to male and female breast cancer patients, survivors and their children 18 or younger in Hatboro, Pennsylvania. UBCF extends sincere gratitude to Nikomed USA for generously donating their space for the additional event. An application (available online) must be submitted and approved in order to attend and receive items.

UBCF’s Executive Director, Ms. Stephanie Mastroianni shared, “My number one priority is to expand the reach and mission of UBCF in service of breast cancer patients and survivors. The overwhelming response and support from the Philadelphia breast cancer community has been truly heart-warming. UBCF’s team is stepping up to meet the needs of the City that Loves You Back. Thanks to the support of the media, we will be back in July to continue the work we started – we’ve got your back!”
The American Cancer Society estimates 12,070 Pennsylvanian women will be diagnosed with Breast Cancer this year. Pennsylvania ranks 11th among the 50 states in the incidence of breast cancer among women, according to the CDC. Early detection is critical to surviving the disease. UBCF encourages women and men to know their bodies and learn the self-breast exam to help recognize any changes. Those in need of a breast screening can find assistance through UBCF’s Breast Screening Program – available to women and men of any age. The program covers all screening technologies including mammography, ultrasound, thermography and MRI.
UBCF is committed to offering breast health and wellness services focused on cancer prevention, screening, treatment and overall wellness. UBCF’s mission is to make a positive difference in the lives of those affected by breast cancer and carries it out through seven life-supporting patient and family programs available to women, men and families nation-wide. UBCF never denies services to anyone regardless of age, race, gender, ethnicity, income or medical insurance coverage. Tax-deductible contributions may be made towards UBCF’s programs. UBCF accepts vehicle and property donations as well. Combined Federal Campaign #77934. http://www.ubcf.org
