For 10 years, Tempur-Pedic has been partnering with the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network to provide donations for Pancreatic Cancer research, through an initiative called the Rest Test. The Rest Test allows people to visit a retail store and try out a Tempur-Pedic mattress, then in turn, Tempur-Pedic will donate $10 to PanCAN. One store this year took this challenge to heart and truly went above and beyond, raising almost $24,000 in donations. Ashley Furniture Homestore in College Station, Texas raised almost $17,000 in 2018, then decided to raise the bar in 2019. Overall, Tempur-Pedic was able to raise over $184,000 to donate to PanCAN to help fund research into this devastating disease that has the highest mortality rate of any major cancer – only 9% of patients diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer will survive past the 5 year mark[1].

The Rest Test initiative was started to honor the brother of Tempur-Pedic executive Tim Miller, whose brother passed away from Pancreatic Cancer in 2012[2]. Pancreatic Cancer, while rare and only causing 4.5% of cancer-related deaths[3], touches the hearts of many who are part of the Tempur-Pedic family. The Rest Test will continue to be something that Tempur-Pedic not only takes part in, but very much looks forward to each and every year.
