EVENT DATE: May 20, 2017

THE STORY:

This is our General Donation Page for the 2017 Walk-a-thon Event! Our 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. WHO WE ARE 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. Please note: Mary’s Place by the Sea is not a medical facility with medical staff or aides. OUR HISTORY 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. This resounding concept spread. Over the course of the next year and more women with cancer wanted to stay than the accommodations would allow. In 2011, Mary's Place moved to 15 Broadway, an historic, four-bedroom home which needed minor renovations to accommodate up to four women overnight. OUR FUTURE After five years of welcoming women through these doors and many more on waiting lists, the decision to build a new home was an easy one. The demand for a respite was high as we learned about more and more women who were facing this life-altering disease. On November 6, 2014, we broke ground on our new home that will house up to 9 guests will now be able stay overnight in a private room with a full bathroom. Our guests with mobility issues will now be able to participate in all services available thanks to a new elevator to carry them to our upper floors. This is particularly significant for our guests who currently share bathrooms and climb many stairs to enter into our front door. While serving more women with cancer, we hope to expand our programs. We have established a partnership with our local university to provide mental health counselors on a regular basis. In our new home, nutrition sessions will be hands-on in our larger, teaching kitchen. Group workshops and sessions will be offered on a regular basis in the new multi-purpose room. Mary's Place will continue to be a place for respite and hope for all women who walk through our doors.
