NORMAN — There are millions of women who are suffering from cancer every year. Many of them do not have the strength to even lift a mop, let alone clean their entire house. Caring Homemakers & Deb’s Expert Janitorial has joined Cleaning For A Reason to help clean houses for women undergoing treatment for cancer. A clean environment has been shown to positively affect a cancer patient’s recovery.

“We are very excited to be associated with such a wonderful foundation,” says Margaret McCarrell of Caring Homemakers. “We all have been touched in one form or another by cancer. Not everyone is able to donate financially, and this foundation allows us to donate our skills to help others affected by cancer. By donating our time, skills and our hearts we are helping women, their families and our community.”

Cleaning For A Reason actively recruits cleaning services to clean homes for women undergoing treatment for cancer.

Since 2011, Cleaning For A Reason has grown from 800 partners to over 1,000 partnered maid services. Cleaning For A Reason has donated $1.3 million worth of cleanings to more than 4,600 women over the past two years. Since Cleaning For A Reason’s founding in 2006, cleaning services that have joined Cleaning For A Reason have donated more than $2.9 million in free services.
