Cleaning for a Reason for Cancer Patients‏

Received this in an email from my aunt - Thanks Aunt Jo.
I just found out that there is a foundation that provides the gift of a clean home for any woman who is undergoing treatment for cancer of any kind. I would encourage anyone who knows a woman undergoing cancer treatment to go to the site or call and see if they are providing this service in your area. Four free cleaning services, one per month for 4 months, are provided if there is a participating service in your area. I hope this helps someone you know that might benefit!

There is a great deal of interesting, and informative info here. My favorite is on the homepage about half way down and all the way to the right, click on the map of the US and get tax data on whatever state you select. Link in and get the facts on taxes nationwide.
