OUR
MISSION
.

Little Mary’s offers a free vacation respite for families facing life threatening or terminal illness. Families who have lost a child through illness and terminal adults are also welcome.

 

Our facility can also host group retreats (Fri-Sun limited to 30 people)

OUR
STORY
.

Mary Catherine Fischer is the daughter of Thomas and Maureen Fischer, and at the age of 3, she died of an inoperable brain tumor.

 

Remembering their last vacation taken with Mary and their other eight children, the Fischers decided to provide a memorable vacation for other families facing similar situations.

 

On the 1-year anniversary of her death, Little Mary’s Hospitality House was dedicated in memory of their precious daughter.
