Cleaning for a Reason
Fighting cancer is difficult enough, but living with it is even tougher and that’s where Cleaning For A Reason steps in. As a nonprofit serving the entire United States and Canada, they partner with maid services to offer professional house cleanings to help women undergoing treatment for cancer, any type of cancer. To date, they have provided more than 17,000 cleanings for women with cancer with a value of more than $4 million in donated cleanings, and partnered with over 1000 maid services. The demand for services continues to increase as does the need for more maid service partners. Every day, they recruit new maid service partners with the heart and soul to donate house cleanings for local women with cancer in their hour of need.

Pink Door
Each year, millions of women are diagnosed with cancer:  mothers, grandmothers, sisters, aunts, cousins, other important family member and friends are affected by this disease. Though this diagnosis has become more frequent in the United States, thousands of women are also recovering.  In doing so, many are now asking: What happens next? After many women have placed their lives on hold while undergoing treatment for cancer, they now have a place to come home to.  Pink Door provides women hope, support, and a new life after cancer through their programs and services. The organization’s goal is to help as many women as possible through their outreach in educating women on their programs and offering the beginning to a new life after cancer.

507c6cd937609The Rose
Every woman deserves quality breast health care. Every woman deserves The Rose. The Rose reduces deaths from breast cancer by providing access to screening, diagnostics, and treatment services to any woman regardless of her ability to pay. For every 3 women who go to The Rose for their screening, a fourth woman who otherwise wouldn’t be able to afford it, can receive a free screening.  The Rose addresses any barrier that might keep a woman from caring for her own needs.  Studies show women often put personal needs on hold while tending to the needs of others. Many women cite cost and lack of access as reasons they delay preventive services, yet early detection mammography screenings are the most powerful weapons in the fight against breast cancer – which is 98% curable when detected early. For the woman who puts everyone else ahead of her own care, The Rose encourages her to take care of herself also.
