Welcome to Mary's Place by the Sea


The Vision of Mary's Place by the Sea is a world where every woman with cancer has a PLACE to feel whole.

Mary’s Place by the Sea is a respite home for women who are receiving treatment for cancer.  We provide services that complement their medical treatment, including oncology massage, nutrition education, individual counseling, Reiki, guided meditation, expressive writing, and yoga.  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, 10,000 women with cancer have become "guests" of Mary's Place by the Sea.

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


COVID-19 UPDATE  (4/3/2020)

Dear Mary’s Place by the Sea Community,

In ten years of service to women with cancer, we have learned that in their time of extreme crisis, what our guests need most is the opportunity to pause and focus on the mind, body and soul.

We are at a point of crisis as we face the COVID-19 pandemic in our country, and it is at this time that Mary’s Place by the Sea must hit the pause button.  The health and well-being of our community is our first priority, and to do our part in protecting our guests, volunteers, staff and practitioners, our home will be closed to guests between March 17th and July 7, 2020.  We will continue to closely monitor this situation and at this time, we anticipate reopening our home to guests on Tuesday, July 7th.

While we are saddened that we are unable to be with all of the people who bring so much love and joy into our lives, please know that each one of you is with us daily in our hearts and prayers. We hope that you will all practice self-care in the ways that you can during these next few weeks. 

Please know that if you were scheduled to visit Mary’s Place by the Sea as a guest between March 17th and June 30th, we will be in touch with you very soon to reschedule your visit. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Sending you all of our love,

The Team at Mary’s Place by the Sea
