Our Mission

The Hatteras Island Cancer Foundation, an all-volunteer non-profit organization, supports cancer patients and their families living on Hatteras Island.  Founded in December 2000, the foundation’s primary goal is to raise funds to provide financial assistance for medical bills, prescriptions, and travel expenses.  To date, the Hatteras Island Cancer Foundation has assisted over 234 islanders with cancer and their families with grants in excess of $1,000,000. HICF also works in conjunction with other cancer resource organizations on the Outer Banks to provide additional services that may be needed.
