One in eight women will develop invasive breast cancer in her lifetime. This year alone, an estimated 231,840 new cases of invasive breast cancer and 60,290 new cases of non-invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in women in the U.S. (Source) Cleaning for women with cancer

Battling cancer is tough. When a woman is sick and can’t take care of her home the way she would like to, it adds to her stress.

This is why we are privileged to be a member of  the Cleaning for a Reason foundation, a national organization which puts women undergoing cancer treatment in touch with member cleaning companies that want to donate their services. Sponge & Sparkle has been part of the Cleaning for a Reason network since 2007.

The Cleaning for a Reason foundation has 1,100 companies in its network throughout the United States. In order to be approved for the network, a  professional residential maid service must be insured or bonded and perform background checks on their employees. These professional cleaning companies have provided more than 15,000 cleanings to cancer patients, valued at more than $4,000,000.

How it Works

Once a patient calls the Cleaning for a Reason foundation, they will verify her eligibility and put her in touch with a professional house cleaning service provider in her area.

The number of cleanings varies by provider; we typically give each recipient 4 cleanings of 2 hours each with 2 people.

If you know of a woman fighting cancer who could benefit, please tell her about the C4R website.

 We love to clean and we want to help.
