October is an important month as it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a month dedicated to raising awareness of the disease and early detection. Did you know if breast cancer is detected early in the localized stage the 5-year survival rate is 100%? This month gives us a chance to educate on healthy habits, self-exam tips, and the signs to look for to ensure any issues are caught early. Considering female breast cancer represents 15.2% of all new cancer cases in the U.S, there are many families and individuals affected by this disease daily. Breast cancer also isn’t a disease that solely affects women, while much rarer, an estimated 2,670 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year in the U.S alone.
Here at Essentia natural memory foam, we are sensitive to the effects of cancer in any form as we were founded by Jack Dell’Accio after his own personal experience with a family member’s battle with cancer. Essentia was founded to solve a void on the market. There was no pressure-relieving mattress that did not off-gas. This is an issue if you have chemical sensitivities; are suffering from diseases like cancer; choose prevention over chronic exposure to chemicals; value an organic lifestyle or are seeking higher quality sleep.
“My journey began after experiencing a family member’s battle with cancer, after being made aware of the toxins in everyday items we struggled to find a mattress that offered pressure relief and posture support without introducing toxins to the bedroom. I realized at that point how important this was not only for someone battling the disease but also for healthy people.
That’s when Essentia was born, 13 years later and we’re more than just the world’s healthiest mattresses. Essentia has revolutionized sleep and how it impacts your environment. The frenzy of the bed-in-a-box has reached absurd heights today, yet nothing has changed as far as health and wellness of the products being offered. This is where Essentia stands alone, providing products made with natural and organic components and unparalleled quality without compromise. People everywhere are quickly realizing the importance of healthy, natural choices during the 16 hours they’re awake. We’re determined to fill that same need for the eight hours they’re asleep.”
Along with striving to provide the healthiest sleep surface to both support those battling disease but most importantly help combat the exposure to disease-causing chemicals, Essentia has also built the Betterhood. The Betterhood is our initiative to become a part of our communities and contribute to the best of the communities we are a part of. At every Essentia showroom, you will find Betterhood events that allow us to get involved with our local charities, causes, artists, and organizations.
This month we are prioritizing giving back for breast cancer research. That is why each store and Essentia as a whole have banded together to collect donations for the cause. Join our Betterhood and help battle Breast Cancer by donating here: https://give.bcrf.org/Essentia
