Cleaning for a Reason - Help for women fighting Cancer - Pass this on...

Cleaning for a reasonThis information got sent to me by a friend and I wanted to pass it on...

Fighting cancer is difficult enough, but living with it is even tougher - and that's where the Cleaning for A Reason Foundation steps in. This nonprofit offers free professional housecleaning, and maid services to improve the lives of women undergoing treatment for cancer.

If you know any woman currently undergoing chemotherapy, please pass the word to her that there is a cleaning service that provides FREE housecleaning - once per month for 4 months while she is in treatment. All she has to do is sign up and have her doctor fax a note confirming the treatment. Cleaning for a Reason will have a participating maid service in her zip code area arrange for the service. This organization serves the entire USA and currently has 547 partners to help these women.

Pass the word and let them know that there are people out there that care. The website for more information is: http://www.cleaningforareason.org
