Help support this free, non-toxic home cleaning service for cancer patients of all ages who are currently undergoing treatment.


The idea for Cleaning Up for Cancer first came to Cindy Bearman while she was battling breast cancer. She couldn’t tolerate the smell of regular cleaning products and worried about how they could impact her health. Not happy with existing cleaning services or products, she and her husband David decided to do something about it. That's when Cleaning Up For Cancer was born.

"I know how much better one can feel by having a clean house, it is one less thing to worry about. You have a limited supply of energy while undergoing chemo; if we can free the patient up from one chore it will give them more time to concentrate on getting better," Cindy says.

Additional cities in Minnesota and surrounding areas will be added soon. Please check back or contact us to see if/when your area will be receiving Clean Up For Cancer patient home cleaning services.
