Nominate a loved one for a free house cleaning with Cleaning for a Reason

How to support friends and family affected by illness or injury

When a loved one’s life is suddenly affected by a serious illness or injury, all we want to do is make things better.

Since 2015, Jeannie Cleaning owners Jeannie and Terry Henderson have provided exceptional professional cleaning services to the greater Kalamazoo community.

Jeannie Henderson explains:

"When you don’t know what to do to help someone going through a health challenge, the best option is to give tangible support without being asked."

There are countless ways to support a friend or family member; Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • Text them when you’re at the store asking them what you can buy for them
  • Take them out for a movie, coffee, lunch or just a walk on a nice day
  • Accompany them to their treatments and other appointments
  • Offer a subscription to a magazine or a good book
  • Send cards, texts or emails to let them know you’re thinking of them
  • Offer to babysit their children or pets
  • Send a silly joke or a photo
  • Provide a cozy blanket or sweater to keep them warm during treatments
  • Stop to visit whenever they want

In their commitment to improving the lives of local families, in 2017 they partnered with an international non-profit organization, clean for a reason.

Clean for a reason with Jeannie Cleaning

Cleaning For A Reason connects to over 1,200 housekeeper services across the United States and Canada, providing free house cleaning services to families battling cancer.

House cleaning services can provide much-needed relief for people undergoing cancer treatment:

"It’s so overwhelming to have cancer...There are so many appointments, I hate feeling needy, but you need a lot of help. Anyone who’s had cancer knows there are so many things you need help with and for me cleaning was a big one. I just finished my last chemo praise God!! and I’m getting ready to do radiation."

Jeannie Cleaning will host their fourth annual “Cancer Cleanup Week” October 11-15, 2021in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
