All Proceeds Benefit the Hatteras Island Cancer Foundation.  The HICF is an all-volunteer and non-profit organization that 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, travel expenses, and other needs that might not be taken care of by insurance.

To date, the Hatteras Island Cancer Foundation has assisted over 235 islanders with cancer and their families with grants in excess of $1,000,000.
