The HNC Fund provides financial support for the well-being of Head and Neck Cancer patients and supports HNC Research at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
High impact funding equals long-term support.
The HNC Fund will distribute 80% of all funds raised annually between our patients of the year and specific
HNC research programs.
We realize that the cost of cancer doesn’t stop at the hospital doors. Once our HNC patient of the year moves on, we hope that they will continue to benefit and/or recover from a multitude of “hidden costs”. These expenses can include: transportation and travel for medical appointments, child care costs, loss of income, medical co-pays, medications, long term home care, legal and financial issues, and let’s not forget cancer treatment.
