    My friend Lee just sent me this link. What a fabulous thing!

    One of the things my mom did for me when I started treatment was to get me a cleaning lady. She decided to do it and didn’t doubt for a second that it would be a huge help, and it was. A friend of mine sent Yolanda to me, and she was without a doubt my my angel.

    I felt badly for laying down on my tush while she scurried around my messy house, but she sang as she worked, and she reprimanded my children ever so kindly for letting their rooms get so out of control. If things got lost, it was Yolanda’s fault!
    Because I had her, I could rest. It took a huge amount of stress off.

    It’s one of those things I would highly recommend in any case for anyone going through cancer treatment. If you can’t afford it, here’s “cleaning for a reason” to the rescue!

    —————————————————————
    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.

    I’m so glad this service is available. Kindly put this in your mental rolodex in case someone you love faces cancer treatments, and if you’re running your own triathlon be good to yourself and call these folks. That’s what they’re here for, and you’ll be glad you said yes.
