THE STORY:

Dear Friends and Family -

Mary’s Place by the Sea is a nonprofit respite home for women who are receiving treatment for cancer.  The tranquil home, located in Ocean Grove, NJ, provides integrative services that complement the guests' medical treatment, including oncology massages, nutrition education, individual counseling, Reiki, guided meditation, expressive writing, and yoga.  I learned about Mary's Place several years ago - and although I found out about this wonderful organization after my last cancer treatment and haven't stayed there yet - I have been fortunate to observe the caring, nuturing and support first hand.  This is our 3rd year walking for this wonderful community!

The beach and sea has always been my "happy place" -it's where I go to get away from the stress, the rat race and constant swirling in this crazy world.  And, it's where I was drawn to first when facing my own cancer challenges.  I spent time at the beach alone recovering from chemo.  How wonderful would it have been to share the company of others in my situation and explore integrative programs/therapy in one place for a day or two?   It's a blessing that Mary's Place by the Sea provides a soothing locale for women going through difficult medical, emotional and often financial challenges.  For those who usually take care of others first, it can be very therapeutic and uplifting to embody this program and learn new things to support your journey - even for just a day or two.  It truly makes a positive impact on one's pysche when you may be feeling your most vulnerable and unwell.  

Michele, Maria and their entire team of angels have created a comforting, peaceful, and soothing haven for those to heal mind, body and soul when it is needed most.  And, as importantly, they provide hope.  Please join us in raising much needed funds for this exceptional team and extraordinary mission!  Let's make it possible for many more women experience this extraordinary program!  Thank you in advance on behalf of the women who will continue to benefit from the work at Mary's Place by the Sea! 

Love Laura and Aug

 

HOPE by Emily Dickinson

Hope” is the thing with feathers -
That perches in the soul -
And sings the tune without the words -
And never stops - at all -

And sweetest - in the Gale - is heard -
And sore must be the storm -
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm -

I’ve heard it in the chillest land -
And on the strangest Sea -
Yet - never - in Extremity,
It asked a crumb - of me.
