The Alhassan family lives in Brandon. They’re a busy family facing some medical challenges with their son Jordan who is seven-years-old.

“Jordan has diabetes and Neurofibromatosis,” said Kerry. “Since Christmas he has also been struggling with G.I. and he hasn't been able to go to school due to these issues.”

Kerry says her son’s medical condition has taken a toll.

“Jordan's medical infortunes take much of my time and energy,” said Kerry. “Every day we wake up and we are thankful, because we know it could be worse.”

Kerry is looking forward to some much-needed rest on her new mattress

“I get very little sleep. I check Jordan's blood sugar every two hours, even overnight 24/7.”

Kerry has always had a hand-me-down mattress and is excited about a quality mattress to help her get a good night’s sleep.

“This means so very much to me,” said Kerry. “The health issues in our family bring a lot of stress. Getting a new mattress has really boosted my spirits since I’ve been feeling down.”

Kerry also says this is has so much meaning to hear family.

“I would extend a huge thank you to you to Beds by Design,” said Kerry. “This is more than a mattress to me, this is hope. This is comfort and this filled a huge need for us.”
