Cleaning for a Reason

Posted by Steve Wolgemuth on February 7, 2011 in Journal |

If you are one of the several dozen friends who told us about “Cleaning For a Reason,” the cleaning program for cancer patients, you’d probably be interested in this update. It turns out that we tried and tried to use the program, albeit, unsuccessfully.  With Lori’s persistence, we learned that a lot of people were trying to log in and the “slots” were always booked full in the first few minutes each day.

Then we got connected with Garman’s cleaning service and everything changed. Next thing we knew it, we got interviewed on Fox News. So Lori did what most women would do in this situation – she spent the day cleaning to get ready for the cleaning service and Fox News.

They aired it tonight at 6:30 (short version) and plan to air the longer version at 10 pm. As the cleaning service schedules its upcoming dates, I might need to tell Lori the wrong days so she doesn’t “prepare” for them.  :-)

    wow Lori you are gorgeous! And yes Steve, make sure she doesnt know about it so she doesnt clean for the cleaners haha I understand though Lori, I would probably do that too….

  • Becky says:

    WOW! That is so cool!

  • Dan & April Lutz says:

    I just want to say “Lori, you look beautiful!” and I would have cleaned too. Actually, it crossed my mind if you cleaned before they came so I find that funny that Steve would say that. We continue to pray for you daily and for strength and endurance. I know how hard those chemo treatments can be on a body and so sorry that you even have to endure this. Try to stay positive and know that in the long run it is good.

    This is such a wonderful way to help others. I commend them, and you Lori, for your strength, especially after the disappointing news. You will get through this and be even stronger then ever. We love you and are praying for you!!

  • That’s awesome!! And Steve, you crack me up. We women have to clean UP before someone else comes to actually CLEAN for us.

    We love you guys and wish we were close enough to help. But we can still pray.
