By on August 24, 2020

HICF is grateful to the Outer Banks Hospital for helping islanders make off-island trips for cancer treatments.

The Hatteras Island Cancer Foundation (HICF) expressed their gratitude to the Outer Banks Hospital in a recent announcement, citing the hospital’s continued generosity through the Vidant Community Health Benefit Program.

Per the recent update, HICF was awarded grant funds via the program to assist Hatteras Island residents with costs incurred when travelling on and off the island for cancer-related treatments.

“We appreciate working with community partners like Vidant and are thankful for their support,” stated HICF.

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 195 islanders with cancer and their families with grants in excess of $975,000.
