Welcome to Mary's Place by the Sea


Mary’s Place by the Sea is a respite home for women who have been diagnosed with cancer.  We provide services, both in-person and virtually, that complement their medical treatment. Services include oncology massage, nutrition education, individual counseling, Reiki, guided meditation, expressive writing, yoga and more.  Mary’s Place by the Sea is not a medical facility with medical staff.  We offer integrative services to women with cancer and provide rest and support during this challenging time in their lives. They are empowered with knowledge that will aid them on their road to healing.

Since 2009, over 11,000 women with cancer have become "guests" of Mary's Place by the Sea.

Our home is located at 22 Main Avenue in Ocean Grove. Please call 732-455-5344 for more information. 

Thank you for supporting our Second Annual Swing for the Soul Golf Outing!


Thank you for supporting Mary's Place by the Sea at our Second Annual Swing for the Soul Golf Outing! It was wonderful to be with you all, to share a day of fun on the course and to be reminded of our WHY.


As our guest speaker, Karin, shared during our lunch program: 


“My visit to Mary’s Place was a breath of fresh air; I felt so welcomed as soon as I stepped inside. I was able to pause and focus on healing, with services like oncology massage, reiki, guided meditation, a nutrition class and journaling. I had the space to share with and listen to other women affected by cancer. We come from different backgrounds, we are different ages, we come from different walks of life, but we all have the same common denominator. Mary’s Place brings women together to physically, emotionally, and spiritually heal from the devastation of cancer.”


Thank you for supporting this event so that we may continue to serve women like Karin. We are proud to say that we have surpassed our fundraising goal, raising over $62,000. Proceeds from the Golf Outing will directly support women with cancer through services that refresh their minds, rejuvenate their bodies, and restore their souls. Now in our 13th year, our mission has served over 12,000 women with cancer, thanks to the generosity of donors like you. 


Thank you for your love and support.
