The Hatteras Island Cancer Foundation recently announced the launch of www.hicf.org, their newly redesigned website, which offers information on the organization and its history, applications for those on Hatteras Island that are dealing with cancer, a list of events and fundraising activities that can help support qualified applicants, and more.
This new website was made possible by a grant from the Outer Banks Community Foundation and paid for from the Milton A. Jewell Grant Fund, the Hatteras Fund, and the Community Fund, and was designed by GCP Design & Marketing.
The new site features a streamlined, modern design, and improved functionality. “As we are still the same organization of neighbors helping neighbors, we wanted to make ourselves a little more digital,” stated the announcement. “You can submit a grant application online, complete a volunteer form, request durable medical equipment (DME), upload a recipe for our next cookbook, and as always, make a donation to HICF.”
Other highlights of the new site include a new Thank You wall, and more descriptive details about upcoming events, with the next one, (and only major one so far this year), being HICF’s 1st Virtual 5K, which offers everyone from near or far the opportunity to join the organization for their annual run.
“The Hatteras Island Cancer Foundation’s hope with the new website is to offer a place for those who need assistance to come for information,” stated the announcement, “and for those looking to support us to plan on joining us for some of our highly anticipated events and fundraisers or simply make a donation.”
About the Hatteras Island Cancer Foundation
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 caregivers to medical centers for cancer treatment. To date, the Hatteras Island Cancer Foundation has assisted over 196 islanders with cancer and their families with grants in excess of $975,000. HICF also works in conjunction with other cancer resource organization on the Outer Banks to provide additional services that may be needed.
