Home Sweet Home Cleaning offers free services to area cancer patients
Cancer patients can have one less thing to worry about in their daily tasks thanks to a new Waterville-based approach Home Sweet Home Cleaning and gardening.
Owner, Founder and CEO Heather Loveland-Button said they knew cancer hits home hard and wreaks havoc not only on the patients themselves, but also on their family, friends and caregivers. For this reason, Home Sweet Home has joined the national non-profit program Cleaning For A Reason to clean the homes of cancer patients in Oneida, Madison and Onondaga counties at no cost to them.
They are also raising $10,000 to go directly to Cleaning For A Reason, she added.
After watching her own mother battle cancer, Loveland-Button said she understands the hardships cancer brings to patients and their families. A good household can be a great comfort to them.
She said Home Sweet Home had just joined the Cleanup for a Cause campaign and had so far cleaned one house and had recently been matched with new cancer patients for June cleanups. All Home Sweet Home staff will have the opportunity to work with a cancer patient, she added.
