RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - You’ve Got Maids of Carson City is going the extra mile for cancer patients. The cleaning service will clean homes for free while people are receiving treatment.

Franchise Owner Bruce Jurgensen said its part of the company’s Cleaning for a Reason partnership. He said, “Our main focus is we want them to fight their cancer and we will fight their cleaning, we don’t want them to worry more than they have to worry.”

Cancer survivor Leticia Crozier was diagnosed with leukemia in 2017. She relapsed once and had a stem cell transplant. The mother of three said it was exhausting managing the house. “I had no immune system, I was down, tired, my husband was working 50 hours a week.”

Crozier’s cousin heard about the partnership. The service took a load of worry off Crozier’s shoulders. Jurgensen said, “We cleaned basically from the bathrooms to the kitchens, top to down, to bottom.”

“It lasted a good time when they came and they came once a month for three months," she said. A clean home impacted her health. “I had no immune system, germs were not allowed in my house and with three small children that was really, really hard.”

She’s been cancer free for two years now and she will never forget the people who helped her along the way.
