Cancer patients are often fatigued from their treatments and medications. There’s only so much a cancer patient can do in a day when going to and from doctors appointments, to just trying to get through the day without feeling too weak and tired. The very last thing on a cancer patient’s mind, especially for women who may be responsible for running a home, is keeping the house clean.

That’s where amazing organizations, like Cleaning Hands For You can help. Cleaning Hands For You helps cancer patients by offering free home and carpet cleaning in Ft.Campbell KY, Clarksville, Sango and Oak Grove, TN areas. Cleaning Hands For You understands the toll cancer treatments can take on a person — it drains their energy, sometimes for weeks on end, leaving cancer patients unable to keep up with trying to maintain their lives as “normal” as possible as they were before cancer.

Cleaning Hands For You offers cancer patients free house cleaning and carpet cleaning once a month, for two months. This cleaning service is offered through the support of partner donator’s organizations that choose to participate. Doris Scheidler, Founder of Cleaning Hands For You, decided years ago while running a cleaning service that she would offer these free cleaning services to cancer patients before her own sister encountered cancer. “There is a great need in our community to help cancer patients with cleaning! The chemotherapy and radiation takes drastic effect on their whole body!”

Cancer patients themselves, or their family and friends can apply (for them) by logging onto the Cleaning Hands For You website.


Cleaning Hands For You is a nonprofit organization that serves all of Clarksville, Oak Grove, Sango and Fort Campbell Areas. Our mission is to give the gift of free home cleaning to women, men and children undergoing treatment for any type of cancer, especially the terminally ill. Our goal is to let these brave and strong women, men and children and their family focus on their health and cancer treatment while Cleaning Hands For You focuses on, and takes away the worry and work of cleaning their homes– free of charge. Cleaning Hands For You also provides carpet cleaning to limited areas in your home. When we come out to do an observation of your home we will apprise you of what our cleaning and carpet services will consist of.

In order for us to service your home we will set up an initial consultation and then proceed to set a day and time when someone will be there to let us in to do the service. It can be a family member, friend, neighbor etc. Our carpet cleaning service may or may not be on the same day as the cleaning. Please let us know in advance if you are allergic to anything or have a bias to any smells that may make you uncomfortable or unable to be around.
