The diagnosis, my diagnosis, hit me hard and changed my world. Mary's Place by the Sea was there to support me, and "shore" up my strength. The services provided are so often overlooked by the conventional medical approach, and did so much, in such a loving way, to return me to my place in the world. Renewed, purposeful, validated, and knowing I'm not alone. Every woman facing this challenge should be able to experience this wonderful place and it's caring staff. If you can, please contribute to keep their doors open for the healing to continue.
