A Message from Our Founders

  • HAPPY NEW YEAR 2017!
  • Dear Friend of Mary’s Place by the Sea,

  • Happy New Year! We cannot believe the month of February is already upon us. Time seems to be flying by as we respond to the continual demand for respite care. We are repeatedly humbled by the opportunity to touch the lives of so many women with cancer, and we have just scratched the surface.

  • 2017 will be yet another year of growth for Mary’s Place by the Sea, in a new and exciting way.  Our mission will broaden to include programs for cancer survivors and caregivers. We also hope to develop more partnerships like those we have and cherish with Monmouth University, to expand our reach in our local community and beyond.  

  • There is still much work to be done, and many more women to serve.  We hope you will join us for one of our largest fundraisers of the year, the 2017 Mary’s Place by the Sea Walk-A-Thon. This year’s event will be held on Saturday, May 20th at the Ocean Pathway in Ocean Grove NJ. We are asking a lot of people to do a little to make this event a success. Whether you choose to create a team or sponsor the event, your support continues to sustain Mary’s Place by the Sea.  
    We are blessed by you and your belief in our mission.
    With love and gratitude,
    Michele Gannon and Maria McKeon
    Founders, Mary’s Place by the Sea
