I would like to dedicate this page to my beautiful mother, Denise! My mother was the most amazing woman... which became clearest as she battled urethral cancer. My mother passed away at the very young age of 56. My mother dedicated her life to her children, my brother Michael and I and her grandchildren Angelina, Brianna, and Caiden. She never missed anything! My kids looked forward to their sleepovers at Nee Nee's... for popcorn and stories and so much more! She was the rock of our family! When my mom got sick, she decided not to to the normal course of treatment after several surgeries. She ended up going away for treatment and there she made friends... people who would become a support for her and her for them because they were facong the same challenge: TO BEAT CANCER! These people made a bond that helped each other deal with the situation at hand... it was a relationship special to them that no one else could understand. They were relationships that kept her going... This leads me to Mary’s place! I knew shortly after my mother passed that I wanted to do something in her name and memory. I did not feel it was appropriate to raise or donate to tradition hospitals and research, as this wasn't something my mother really believed in. She did, however, believe in helping people. She believed that no matter what you are facing yourself there is still time to help others. This is what I believe Mary's place is for so many woman. A place where women can go for support and selfless love... just like my mother appreciated and gave so freely! A place where you can share stories and tell your struggles and solutions to help... a table to be completely vulnerable because you are all fighting the same battle together! My mother, even at the end, gave so much support to the people she met who were facing the same struggle!!!! I cannot say enough about my mom and about the hole in mine and my families lives without her... but Mary's place is something I know my mother would be so proud to be a part of and in her honor I would like to raise money for women battling cancer to have a place where they can get the same selfless love and support! Please consider making a donation of any amount to help this beautiful organization continue to help women battling cancer a place to heal: mind, body and soul. Feel free to check out their page if you have any questions about the services provided there and to read some of the testimmonies from past visitors... I truly believe if you know what Mary's Place is all about, you will feel amazing to know you had a part in it's continued success! Help me to spread "Nee Nee's Love" xoxo
