National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

MasterCare Offers Free House Cleaning

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month—aka, “Pinktober.” As such, Santa Barbara’s MasterCare Home Cleaning Services is offering free house cleaning for women undergoing treatment. MasterCare owner Spencer Dean knows personally how much a clean home can help during the difficult treatment process—his sister is a breast cancer survivor, his mother was a breast cancer survivor, and his sister-in-law succumbed to breast cancer at 42. According to the company’s press release, since 2006, “MasterCare has provided hundreds of free house cleanings for women with cancer in Santa Barbarba, even receiving the Cleaning for a Reason Remembrance Award in 2009 for donating the most free house cleaning to women with cancer in the entire United States, all in Santa Barbara.” For more information, call Cleaning for a Reason at (877) 337-3348, or visit
