Eze Inspires - Mary's Place By The Sea - June 2016
Organized by: Tara Mallett
Eze Inspires June 2016 Charity Event is supporting Mary's Place By The Sea! Mary's Place By The Sea's mission is to support women with cancer through integrative services which complement their medical treatment and empower, educate and support their healing: mind, body and soul. Mary’s Place by the Sea is a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting women who are receiving treatment for cancer. We provide services that complement their medical treatment, including oncology massages, nutrition education, individual counseling, writing for health, reflexology, Reiki, guided meditation, prayer, and yoga...all free of charge. Our integrative services provide our guests rest and support during this challenging time in their lives. They are empowered with knowledge that will aid them on their road to healing. When Mary's Place by the Sea first opened its doors in 2009, two rooms were rented at a lovely B & B at 7 Ocean Avenue in Ocean Grove. Michele Gannon and Maria McKeon, Co-Founders, began reaching out to oncology offices and groups supporting women with cancer sharing their vision. The response of immediate...finally, a place for women with cancer to come and be surrounded by love and understanding. A place where cancer was a common denominator, but not the defining attribute. A place where taking a deep breath, sharing challenges and experiences and recognizing the needs of the whole person was the focal point.
