Cleaning for a Reason

From a friend:

If you know any woman currently undergoing chemotherapy, please pass the word to here that there is a cleaning service that provides free housekeeping -- once per month for four months while she is in treatment. All she has to do is sign up and have her doctor fax a note confirming the treatment.

Cleaning for a Reason will have a participating maid service in her zip code area arrange for the service. The organization serves the entire USA and currently has 547 partners to help these women.

Be a blessing to someone and pass this information along.

I don't have anyone in mind, but is this wonderful service really only for women?? (According to their site it is. Odd.)

I wonder what would happen if a man who needs the service applied.

Mr. Levy, thank you for your blog. I am studying leadership as part of an MBA program and just finished the HBS case study by Professors Garvin and Roberto (c) 2003. It takes a deep well of confidence to lead others and be "in charge" as you have done. Where does that confidence come from? What is the source? Did you ever have self-doubt? Ever feel insecure as a leader?

Thank you for teaching and sharing your leadership story for others to study, learn and grow.

Best regards,

Thanks for posting this. This kind of practical, in-home assistance can make a huge difference in a patient's quality of life.
