LOVELAND, Ohio (Megan Moore) - Georgia Anderson still holds on to hope. Hope in a new doctor and a new treatment in her near 10-year battle with fallopian tube cancer. It's something she has learned to do.
"They actually told me this last time that they've used all the drugs they can use. There's nothing else I can take. I've taken it all," Anderson said.
After all, she has beaten the odds a time or two. When she was first diagnosed in 2006 she learned her days were numbered, or so doctors thought.
"They gave me six to nine months and we're going on ten years later, so the Lord has definitely been involved."
This Christmas, another number reared its ugly head, ten days.
"It's been ten days so we'll see," Anderson said.
Her daughter Emily Weiss said, "That's kind of our thing is to keep living with it and not letting it get the best of you."
Anderson says she has learned how precious time is and her family too. That is part of the reason her daughter Emily reached out to 'Cleaning for a Reason.'
It's not just for help to keep the house tidy, but also so their time can be better spent with each other.
'Simply Organized' is based out of Loveland and partners with Cleaning for a Reason to offer four free house cleanings for women battling cancer. And these days it's something that sure means a lot to Georgia.
"I'm not bed-fast but there's not much I can do because I lose my air," she said.
Michelle Steffen, co-owner of Simply Organized, said, "Whether it's trying to get an entire house clean in the two hours or if they want us to clean out their refrigerator or whatever it might be. We pretty much do what they want us to do."
Though in these cases the help is free of charge, it doesn't mean these ladies go home empty handed.
"It makes your heart feel full and we love doing it," Steffen said.
The cleaning companies pay a fee to partner with this organization.
