Cleaning by Kate Helping Families in the Battle With Cancer

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
LOCAL CLEANING COMPANY MAKING A DIFFERENCE
New Bern, NC – July 6, 2022 – Cleaning by Kate has teamed up with Cleaning for a Reason, an international nonprofit serving cancer patients through free home cleaning. Owner Kate Moore understands that when someone has cancer, the whole family does too.
“I am passionate about serving cancer patients undergoing treatment,” said Moore. “My father fought stage 4 breast cancer for 13 years and unfortunately passed away in 2013. I remember how stressed he was juggling it all every day. The doctor visits, PET scans, treatments at different centers near and far, while still getting my younger brothers to school and to hockey practice, attending school functions, hosting holidays, and keeping the household up. I always reiterated that his number one priority was his health, his battle, and fighting with all his might. He is not alone. There are so many families and patients that can benefit from having a little less to worry about. I want to give them peace of mind of having a clean home, better air quality, and less household tasks to worry about! It is an honor to help.”
Through partnership with Cleaning for a Reason, Cleaning by Kate assists cancer patients by cleaning their homes for at least two consecutive months free of charge. This will be an ongoing service to cancer patients residing in New Bern and the surrounding areas.
“If you know someone that is going through cancer treatment, please connect them with us or submit their request on Cleaning for a Reason’s website,” said Moore. “We can take cleaning off their mind so they can focus on treatment, family, and way more important things.”
