THE STORY:

It is estimated that more than 46,000 Americans will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer this year, and more than 39,000 will die from the disease. It is the fourth leading cause of cancer death, with a relative five-year survival rate of just 6%. Pancreatic cancer has the lowest relative five-year survival rate of any major cancer.


Historically, pancreatic cancer research has been underfunded. Only approximately 2 percent of the National Cancer Institute’s (NCI) budget is allocated to this leading killer. We know from the relatively high survival rates associated with breast cancer and HIV/AIDS that federal research funding levels matter in the fight to find new cures and directly relate to improved survival rates.

We here at Mattress Firm, in the greater Cleveland, area are putting our heads and hearts together to help fight this terrible disease and show our support. Please help us raise our goal of $888! Any amount from $1 - $ 88 is greatly appreciated and will be contributed to Mattress Firms Give Big, Sleep Happy campaign! Thanks in advance for your support!!!
