I would like to introduce and promote a wonderful organization called Cleaning for a Reason. This group provides maid service for women undergoing breast cancer treatment, and I can’t say enough about how important this is. Any woman in this situation can use considerable help doing the most mundane of tasks. It is a godsend when she receives notice that someone has hired this service for her immediate needs.
Having been in these shoes, you can muster up a cry of delight and relief when you know they are coming. You will be pleased with the professional results: thorough and attentive cleaning. They come highly recommended so you don’t have to monitor the work or inspect the aftermath. It is a one-stop shop that covers all the bases.
Cleaning can be a simple matter for most of us, but for the ill, it is a formidable task. You are exhausted after light dusting and a few dishes. You can’t face the tremendous challenge of vacuuming even with the best vacuum cleaner or cleaning bathrooms and kitchens. It is beyond the pale to expect these duties, but someone has to look after the house.
Thus, Cleaning for a Reason steps in to help where it is needed the most. I used it myself and give it two thumbs up and a rousing round of applause. It was a life saver, and frankly I don’t know what I would have done without it. It provides a kind of everyday support that surpasses almost any personal need a patient may have. When you have cancer, for example, most things are impossible to fathom. I don’t care if you have the fanciest Dyson or Shark. It is more than glorious to have cleaning work done for you so you have a little more time for yourself–or just to rest.
As a cancer survivor, I have a history and a six sense. The latter tells me when things are right, and when they go awry. You have no stomach for problems when you are sick and little recourse to solutions. You simply don’t have the energy to look into things and make decisions. If just one area of concern is addressed, it is like a big load is lifted off your back.
Cleaning for a Reason is supported by volunteers and donations. It charges a minimal amount for most jobs, another godsend when it comes to the cancer territory. You are spending so much on treatment and medication—things not covered by insurance. You may need a caregiver at times, a driver, and someone to prepare meals. There often doesn’t seem to be enough money to go around when everything is happening so fast.
Having a service on standby lets you know that you are still in control of your environment, if not yet your health. You hope to be back to normal in no time, and this kind of wishing keeps you going. When it does happen, you will look back in wonder at how convenient and vital Cleaning for a Reason was, and, like me, you will want to pass on the word.
