BENEFITING: MARYS PLACE BY THE SEA INC
EVENT DATE: May 21, 2016
As many of you know, over the past 18 months I have been on the rocky road of transforming into the new and improved Megan 2.0! It has been a long and frustrating journey filled with peaks and valleys, but I'm starting to feel like I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.
One safe haven in my journey has been Mary's Place by the Sea, it is a safe haven for women who have gone through or are currently going through treatment for cancer. They provide services that complement medical treatment that include: oncology massages, nutritional education, individual psychotherapy, Reiki, guided meditation and yoga. Mary's place offers integrated services to woman with cancer and provide the much needed rest and support during some of the most challenging moments along the way (both interim and post recovery). Since 2009, over 5,000 women have been welcomed as "guests" of Mary's Place by the Sea, where they are surrounded by supporters to help cope with this process.
All of these services are absolutely free of charge and allows for a place for much needed rest, relaxation and even just a momentary escape from the daily reminders of the remenance of cancer.
As many of you know, I am a very private person... but I feel very strongly about this organization and have been welcomed many times to join in on supportive events at Mary's Place. I hope to give back even a little bit by raising money to support their ongoing services and to expand their offerings. I hope that you will all be able to join us for the 5k walk, but if not I ask that if you could donate even just a few dollars... it would go an extremely long way.
Thank you for supporting this great cause, and specifically for being there for me and my family during this process.
