Cancer patients can have one less thing to worry about in their daily tasks thanks to a new outreach from Waterville-based Home Sweet Home Cleaning & Gardening.
Owner, founder and CEO Heather Loveland button said they know cancer hits home hard and takes its toll not just on the patients themselves but their family, friends and caretakers as well. Because of this, Home Sweet Home has joined with the national non-profit Cleaning For A Reason program to clean the homes of cancer patients throughout Oneida, Madison and Onondaga counties at no cost to them.
They also are raising $10,000 to go directly to Cleaning For A Reason, she added.
After witnessing her own mother battle cancer, Loveland-Button said she understands the hardship that cancer brings to patients and their families. A good home cleaning can be a great comfort to them.
She said Home Sweet Home has just joined the Cleaning for a Cause outreach and so far has cleaned one home and have recently been matched up with new cancer patients for June cleanings. All of the Home Sweet Home staff will have the opportunity to work with a cancer patient, she added.
