I have amazing friends supporting me through my breast cancer treatment journey. They rallied together to feed my family, visit me during treatment, and they even hired a housekeeper to clean my home every two weeks for nearly six months!

Truly the greatest gift a cancer patient could possibly receive is a housekeeper.

Are you picking up what I am putting down, here?

It is simply amazing not to worry about dirty floors or clean sheets.  Especially when you can barely make it out of bed.

Cleaning for a Reason, in Lewisville, Texas agrees.  They make housekeepers a reality for women with cancer across the USA and Canada.

About Cleaning for a Reason

Cleaning For A Reason strives to aid women who are battling cancer by teaming up with professional cleaning companies across the United States and Canada. Together, these two forces offer free house cleaning to meet the needs of women, and since 2006, have donated more than $4.7 million in free services, helping more than 16,000 women with cancer. Based in Lewisville, TX, Cleaning For A Reason works with more than 1,200 residential cleaning companies and continues to grow and gain support. To learn more about Cleaning For A Reason and to apply for free house cleaning, see www.cleaningforareason.org

Yeah, yeah and I cut and pasted that from their website. It’s at the bottom of their press releases. Who better to explain how it works than the company spokesperson?

My point here is, if you have a friend navigating the cancer treatment waters and you want to do something amazing for her, hire a housekeeper.  If you can’t manage the cost of the housekeeper on your own, rally all her friends.  If you can’t rally all her friends, then contact Cleaning for a Reason.

    A dear friend is having a lumpectomy on Wednesday. So I immediately did some online searching, and found that a lot of cancer survivors report hit and miss experiences with this organization – some benefit – many more don’t. I can see that – it must be hard for them to obtain participating services in all areas of the country. When my mother in law was treated for cancer last year, I had similar experiences with some organizations that offered support – wrong cancer, wrong county, wrong (name your own criteria). So, as with so many other things in life, results vary. Still, it is a good thing to know about. It never hurts to ask.

      For the record, I did contact them, today, and was told my zip code was full. But… that shouldn’t stop friends from rallying together and hiring someone on their own!
