Breast Cancer Awareness Month (And Why It’s Important to Us)

Breast Cancer Awareness MonthOctober is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. For over 30 years, the cause has been dedicated to spreading awareness. It also promotes early detection, increased screening, and improved treatment options. Breast cancer is the second most common cancer in women worldwide (after lung cancer). Unfortunately, there are about 1.38 million new cases and 458,000 deaths from breast cancer each year. Although, thanks to earlier detection and increased awareness, a woman’s risk of dying of breast cancer dropped 38 percent between the late 1980s and 2014.

But, there is still more work to do as tens of thousands of new cases are diagnosed each year. Whether personally or through the experience of a friend or family member, nearly everyone has a connection to breast cancer. That is why we help make fighting breast cancer a national priority by celebrating Breast Cancer Awareness Month every October.

Cleaning for a Reason

proud partner of cleaning for a reasonCleaning for a Reason is a non-profit organization whose mission is to give the gift of free house cleaning to women undergoing treatment for any cancer. The goal is to ensure that these women focus on their health and let us worry about cleaning their home. Debbie Sardone, President / Founder, believes it’s the women undergoing the rigors of cancer treatment who need housecleaning services the most. Since 2006, partner maid services have volunteered their time to clean for over 26,000 women- valued at over $6,900,000. That being the case, Spouses Cleaning Houses is a proud partner with Cleaning for a Reason.

You Can Do Your Part

If you or someone you love is undergoing treatment, you can do your part by filling out a patient application for house cleanings. Additionally, if you own a maid service and would like to join us in our efforts, you can send us an inquiry and become a maid service partner. You can also donate money in honor of or in memory of a loved one. Your donations will allow us to continue helping the strong women in our Cleaning for a Reason program. Join us in making a difference.
