Why We’re a Proud Partner
In 2003, my mother was diagnosed with Sarcomatoid Carcinoma. As she began her chemotherapy I began to see firsthand the toll cancer treatment takes on the body. After each session, she would have little to no energy left to do the things she enjoyed, let alone keep up with the house. It would take several days for her to regain her energy, and even then it wasn’t at pre-cancer levels. On those days when she did felt better it was easy to overwork herself, trying to make up for lost time.
It was during this time I learned just how much something a simple as a clean home could make in someone’s life. Cancer leaves you feeling helpless and out of control. A dirty home can just add to the feelings of uncertainty. A clean home brings a breath of fresh air to a difficult situation. There is a sense of calm, a feeling of peace and relaxation, that comes with knowing your home is clean. That’s why we are part of Cleaning for a Reason, to bring a little peace and relaxation to the chaos, giving women the time to invest in doing what they love with those they love.
