Cleaning for Cancer: Tammie’s Story

Earlier this month, T.L.C. Home Services LLC shared about our recent partnership with Cleaning for a Reason, a nonprofit providing free home cleaning for cancer patients. As a “small business with a big heart,” T.L.C. Home Services is dedicated to making our community a better place by the work we do. Despite our dedication to our own business clients, we know that helping those in need is worth the sacrifice of time, materials and labor. Another significant reason that we have a heart for serving cancer patients is that T.L.C.’s own founder and president Tammie Chenevert lost a loved one to cancer and is passionate about serving others who are facing a similar battle.

Tammie’s Story

Tammie as a child with her parents.

“My dad was only 52 years old when he died from bone cancer. Here is a photo of me with my parents. They were 22 years old in this picture,” Tammie shares on our donation page. “My dad loved fishing, hunting and camping. He worked hard and played harder. He never met a stranger because he made friends so easily.”

Tammie shares about their family’s painful journey through cancer:

“The doctors first diagnosed my dad with ulcers, but we were given the hard truth that it was tumors.  It spread to his prostate and then his bones.  It was a horrific sight watching him wither away from 270 to 98 lbs, as I sat at his bedside for the last three months of his life. One I wish I could unsee. My heart ached watching the pain he was going through during his final days.”

When Tammie saw the opportunity for T.L.C. to be a part of Cleaning for a Reason, she was “thrilled that her cleaning company could give back to our community and my cleaning techs could also be a part of helping cancer patients with house cleaning!”

Make a Difference

Cancer is a daunting and painful journey affecting both the patient and their loved ones who walk beside them. We’re so honored to partner with Cleaning for a Reason which finds and directs cancer patients to companies like T.L.C. Home Services to provide free cleanings for cancer patients.

Will you join us in serving our community and blessing cancer patients through house cleaning? It’s our goal to raise at least $1000 (…or to reach Tammie’s secret goal of $5,000!) to support Cleaning for a Reason. We would love it if you would join hands with us in this cause by giving a donation today – any amount is greatly appreciated! You can make a donation in honor or in memory of someone you know who has won the battle, is currently fighting, or someone who has lost the fight. Help our family help those who are still fighting the battle!
