Michele Gannon Director and Co-Founder

Executive Director & a Founder

As the Executive Director and a Founder of Mary’s Place by the Sea, Michele Gannon is responsible for overseeing all facets of the organization. Michele has been at the helm of Mary’s Place since founding the organization in 2009. 

Michele established the safe haven where women with all forms of cancer can go to receive integrative services during and after their medical treatment, at no cost. Her vision for the organization began when recovering from an illness in January of 2009. Michele realized how trying it can be for women to maintain their own physical and emotional health when dealing with their daily responsibilities at home and work, and wondered how much more difficult it could be when diagnosed with a life-altering disease. Michele set out to establish a place where women with cancer could find healing and respite; less than six months later, Mary’s Place by the Sea welcomed its first guest. Since that time, Mary’s Place has welcomed over 15,000 women with cancer from around the nation. All of these  guests have enjoyed all accommodations, services and meals at no cost.
