Spirited Living, Inspired Giving

The Mary Claire Satterly Foundation donates all proceeds to spread “MCSpirit!” to others. The Foundation’s first of many goals is to establish the Mary Claire Satterly Pediatric Oncology Playroom in the new Cancer Hospital in Chapel Hill, NC. With your help in building this Playroom, sick children can just be children, something so dear to Mary Claire. Regardless of the size of your contribution, we are grateful for your gift. There are many different ways that you can help support the MCS Foundation.
