Sleep Number and the American Cancer Society (ACS) teamed up with Kansas City Chiefs legend, Mitchell Schwartz, to donate 85 Sleep Number® smart beds to Hope Lodge® Kansas City.


On Giving Tuesday Sleep Number replaced existing beds at the American Cancer Society (ACS) Hope Lodge in Kansas City with Sleep Number smart beds. This generous donation was made possible in part by donations from Sleep Number® Rewards members, who donated rewards certificates totaling $185,000 in product for the Hope Lodge. ​



“It is so great that Sleep Number is doing this for us because we know how important it is to get a quality night’s sleep for our guests who are going through cancer treatments,” said Barbie Todd, Assistant Manager, Hope Lodge® Kansas City.



During a pizza party lunch, patients and guests at the Hope Lodge were surprised with a delivery of Sleep Number® smart beds. While the beds were installed, Mitchell Schwartz and KC Wolf connected with residents and volunteers.



Quality sleep is essential for overall health and well-being, especially for individuals undergoing cancer treatment. Through this powerful partnership with ACS, Sleep Number is making an impact on the lives of individuals affected by cancer, while also developing research with aims to inform the first-ever, cancer-specific sleep guidelines.




“We are incredibly grateful for the partnership that we have with Sleep Number," said Ashley Berndt, Executive Director, Kansas and Kansas City. "We truly could not do what we do and make the impact in the community without support like partners like Sleep Number. Ensuring a quality night’s rest, we know how important sleep is in our lives, and our guests are so incredibly grateful and we are continually grateful for that as well.”



Sleep Number is committed to ACS Hope Lodge communities, which provide respite, shelter and care for cancer patients and caregivers during their cancer treatment journey. Sleep Number is providing sleep solutions to ensure Hope Lodge guests benefit from quality sleep to bolster their physical, mental and emotional resilience.



 Like diet and exercise, quality sleep is essential for optimal wellbeing and performance. Because everyone's sleep needs are different, Sleep Number® smart beds sense your movements and automatically adjust firmness, comfort and support to keep you both sleeping comfortably. Find your Sleep Number® setting for your best possible night's sleep.
