Dear Mary's Place by the Sea Community,

Some time has passed since we last connected. Over the last several months, our calendar has been filled with daily virtual services for our guests. The response has been outstanding. Thanks to the amazing practitioners on our team, we have been able to reach women with cancer throughout the country, who have been given the opportunity to hit their own personal pause buttons. Our guests have rejuvenated their minds, reinvigorated their bodies and restored their souls while in the comfort of their homes. We are thrilled to offer these services and will continue to do so as we await the reopening of our home. 


One Guest shared: 
"I would like to thank all the staff, volunteers, and donors for making virtual services available during the pandemic. I have participated in the cooking class, soul collage, and afternoon teas with Susan. I have been so blessed by the healing and connection each program offers. The programs have kept me moving forward during a time of isolation, given me a sense of belonging, and encouraged me. Thank you for blessing me with your gifts and talents."

We have also made the decision to switch our Mary's Place by the Sea Walk-A-Thon & 5K to a VIRTUAL event. We had hoped to gather our community in-person, but we know that this is what's best. We hope you will join us on Saturday, October 3rd for our VIRTUAL Walk/Run! Please visit for more information and to register, sponsor or become a virtual vendor. This fundraiser and your support will help to keep all virtual services free for our guests, as well as sustain our mission when the time comes to open our doors. 

Thank you for your continued support and love,

The Team at Mary's Place by the Sea
