They'll clean just about anything.

"We hi-dust we low-dust, baseboards, window frames , door frames, we have girls that clean bathrooms and kitchens," said Sandra Krell, Field Supervisor for the Maid Brigade of Buffalo and Niagara Falls.

And go just about anywhere.

"The downtown Buffalo area the suburbs, the Tonawandas, Grand Island, Lewiston, Youngstown, Wheatfield," explained Kathy Hall, Owner of the Maid Brigade of Buffalo and Niagara Falls.

Hall is a new member of the Cleaning for a Reason non-profit organization. She found out about the program at an annual convention and signed up right away.

The program offers free professional cleaning services to women battling cancer.

"We will clean two customers a month for a four month period," said Hall.

In addition to donating her cleaning services hall donates cash to the program every month to help keep the free service going for women struggling with cancer in cities across the nation. The cause is close to her heart and her employee's for a big reason.

"I was diagnosed in November of 2001 with a chondrosarcoma which is a very rare cancer. I had a tumor that was in my breast bone and rib cage," said Hall.

"When I was 38 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. You go for your treatment, you come home, you don't feel good, you're sick, you're laying around," said Krell.

They know there are plenty of women who need their services but they have yet to be matched up with qualifying clients.
