If you know a woman with cancer, Mary's Place by the Sea can offer her a free stay at a beach house with spa services and more as she deals with the fight of her life. 

Mary's Place by the Sea is a beautiful place in Ocean Grove that provides an innovative approach to caring for women during and after cancer treatment. Guests are provided with unconditional care during their time of extreme need at NO COST. Mary's Place gives these women with cancer a place to rest and recuperate during and after the rigors of their cancer treatments. Volunteers care for these women so they may focus on their healing and gain strength to win the battle with cancer.

The first care center opened in 2009 and currently operates at 15 Broadway Avenue. Proceeds from the "Let's Walk Together" walk-a-thon will help build a much needed new 10-bedroom home that will be located on Main Street in Ocean Grove.

One woman writes of her time at Mary's Place: “I arrived sick, fragile and yes, broken from this dreadful disease; I could hardly climb the stairs. But two days later, I walked out strong, with a smile on my face and God's spirit singing loudly in my heart. You ladies literally saved my life- and I thank you from the bottom of my open, happy heart." C.M.
