Touched by cancer
In March 2017, Melissa’s life changed when she discovered a lump in her right breast while showering. “I was diagnosed with stage 2B invasive ductal carcinoma that was ERPR and HER2 positive.” Like so many others, she knew family and friends with a previous cancer diagnosis, including her father and best friend. “I don’t know of anyone who hasn’t been touched by cancer in some way.”
Her treatment required travel, arranging lodging and a bed so finding comfort and feeling supported became a priority. “I stayed with my nephew and I didn’t want to be a burden with furniture or a bed.” With that in mind, her husband Morris suggested they order a mattress from the company where he works. Later in her recovery, she realized the benefits of a comfortable, affordable, conveniently delivered mattress.
