Stories About Cleaning For A Reason
The last couple of years have been very difficult for Dawn Pacheco.
Dawn says "I've had breast cancer for two years, nine months and I've had stage four right at about a year now." Between the disease and her treatments, she just doesn't have the energy to do much of anything these days, especially clean her own home. Dawn says "When I'm not feeling well and I'm fatigued and I'm tired, physically I just can't do it."
But now she doesn't have to, all thanks to these women with cleaning supplies in tow and smiles on their faces. Dawn says "these angels come in, they clean and they've become my friends too."
And the best part about it, Dawn doesn't have to pay them a penny.
Because of this woman, Debbie Sardone, the founder of the organization, "Cleaning for a Reason."
Her goal, to help women like Dawn living with cancer. Dawn says "in less than two years we've helped over 600 women receive free house cleaning." Dawn says "on those days when I don't feel good, it lifts my spirits just knowing that someone has cared enough to come in and done that for me. It's a great feeling."
A feeling 286 cleaning companies across 38 states nationwide have given to women like Dawn.
But for Debbie, it's only the beginning. Dawn says "we would like to see every maid service in America get involved." A small gesture that means so much. Dawn says "just gives you that inner peace that everything is going to be okay, even if just for a short period of time."
A time when some women need it most.
