The Hatteras Island Cancer Foundation, an all-volunteer non-profit organization, provides support for cancer patients and their families who live on Hatteras Island. Founded in December 2000, the group’s primary goal is to raise funds to offer financial support for patients to help them pay for medical costs not reimbursed by insurance and to pay for travel expenses for themselves and their care givers to medical centers for cancer treatment. To date, the Hatteras Island Cancer Foundation has assisted over 135 islanders with cancer and their families with grants in excess of $550,000.
In addition to financial assistance, HICF also provides community outreach through monthly support group meetings with educational and informational guest speakers. These meetings are held the 3rd Wednesday of each month at the Our Lady of the Seas Recreational Hall in Buxton.
HICF also works in conjunction with other cancer resource organization on the Outer Banks to provide additional services that may be needed.
