    Cleaning for a reason



    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. It's our job to pass the word and let them know that there are people out there that care. Be a blessing to someone and pass this information along.

    You may not know someone going through chemo, but someone on your email list might. Please forward!

    Thank you so much for the link. I just forwarded it to my friend, whose mom found out before the holidays. They're doing a major abdominal surgery to "inspect" each of her organs visually in January to determine the course of treatment. She is like my sister, and thus her mom = my mom.

    Thanks for the reminder. I had heard about this years ago, but had forgotten all about it.

    Happy New Year
