FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Lewisville, TX – October 2, 2017 – For the second year in a row, Cleaning For A Reason has received a grant from The Carey Foundation, whose mission is to distribute donations to cancer non-profits that directly impact breast cancer patients. The $5,000 grant will support Cleaning For A Reason’s mission of providing free house cleaning for women undergoing treatment for cancer throughout the United States and Canada.
“Practical support can go a long way in cheering up a cancer patient,” said Lynn Frankenfield, Cleaning For A Reason executive director. “Cancer is not a gift but free house cleanings are. A diagnosis and treatment of cancer often means a loss of strength and overwhelming tiredness. One can’t do anything—nor should one have to. A cancer patient’s main responsibility becomes holding onto enough strength to fight the cancer. This generous grant from The Carey Foundation will allow us to help an even greater number of women to focus on their health, while we focus on their homes.”
“The Carey Foundation is in the business of helping those that help breast cancer patients,” said Linda Carey, co-creator and President of The Carey Foundation. “The mission of Cleaning For A Reason is one that we want to continue supporting. The gift of a clean house and environment provides much needed support for both cancer patients and their families.”
In partnership with more than 1,200 maid services throughout the United States and Canada, Cleaning For A Reason is celebrating 11 years of dedicated service to women battling cancer. Since 2006, Cleaning For A Reason has donated more than $6.8 million in free services, helping more than 26,000 women with cancer.

The Carey Foundation’s mission is to provide financial support for women and men diagnosed with breast cancer, survivors, and their family members. The Foundation was founded by Linda and Bob Carey, creators of The Tutu Project. Funds raised with the support of The Tutu Project as well as individual and corporate donations are provided directly to organizations that offer assistance with cancer-related costs not covered by insurance.
