Dear Friends of Mary’s Place by the Sea,


This holiday season, we are overwhelmed with gratitude for each one of you. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the love and support you have shown to our guests during a challenging year. Thanks to you, women with cancer can experience Mary’s Place by the Sea from the comfort and safety of their own homes through our Virtual Services Program, which brings them restorative services, a new perspective, and a community of women who are on the same path. Guests who are able to visit our home in-person do so knowing that we have taken good care to ensure their safety, so that they can focus on their healing, mind, body and soul. All of this would not be possible without our donors, practitioners and volunteers. Thank you for donating your hard-earned dollars, your amazing talents, and your time to our mission.


To our guests, thank you for entrusting us with your care and for participating in our program in the way that works best for you at this time. We look forward to brighter days ahead, when Mary’s Place by the Sea is at full capacity and our newly created Virtual Services Program continues to thrive alongside our in-person program. We have faith that this day is coming soon. 


Sending you hope, peace and love during this Holiday Season and a Happy New Year ahead!
