RANDOLPH - A Morris County mom was treated to a free house cleaning Friday as she prepares for her daughter's homecoming.

More than 20 volunteers from "Clutter Crashers" donated their time to clean out Paige Shannon's house.

Her daughter Rebecca has been battling non-Hodgkins lymphoma since 2012.

Shannon spends most of her time visiting her daughter in the hospital in Westchester, making it difficult for her to keep up with the housework.

"I am truly greatful. It means so much because it would be hard for Rebecca to come back," Shannon says. "Her immune system is basically zero, and dust and dirt will be a problem for her."

Pete Lorenzo with Clutter Crashers was glad to pitch in. "It's what life is about. I built a business to help people. When you get to do something like this for a family and for Paige and Rebecca, it's extra special," he says.

California Closets also donated a shelving system for Rebecca's room, and a cleaning service put on the finishing touches.

Rebecca just had a bone marrow transplant, and is scheduled to return home Oct. 11.
