Taking time to reflect and give thanks for the precious things in life is what this season is all about.  Even the simplest tasks in life such as cleaning a home during treatment can become cumbersome & difficult, but for a woman with cancer, a dirty home can create much stress and anxiety.

Since 2007, Jo Ann’s Professional Touch Maid Service has given nearly 80 women with cancer a special gift.  In October, Jo Ann DiPierro, president of the cleaning service with a heart and Ohio’s founding member of the Cleaning for a Reason Foundation, turned it up a notch.  For Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Jo Ann decided to give away a year of free cleaning services to a nominated woman with cancer.  Twenty nominations were submitted, of those, 33 year old Shannon Prexta received 4 nominations from friends, coworkers & family.

Here is an excerpt from one:

”Shannon is an RN who works for the Akron Health Dept. Her job consists of helping women and children with various health, social and economic needs. She is an excellent RN and she very much loves her job. She was diagnosed this year with breast cancer and she has not been able to return to work since July. . . .She also has recently become a single mom. . . .Shannon has two beautiful boys. Sean, 6, is severely autistic and Gabe is 2. If she had someone on a regular basis to clean for her, I know this would relieve her of one thing in her life that would make life easier.”

”We are thrilled to be able to give this gift to Shannon and her children. We work for women every day, so we understand how difficult and cruel life can be, so if we are able to help shine a light for her and give her just a few hours of stress-free comfort, that warms our heart. Our community & clients have been incredibly good & loyal to our company for 19 years, says DiPierro.  We are proud to be able to give back to so many.”

By the way, Jo Ann is awarding all 16 nominees four free cleanings as well.
