  • To raise public awareness of the critical needs of people undergoing treatment for head and neck cancers­—many of which are now vaccine preventable!
  • To raise and distribute funds to assist as many individuals as we can reach.

Since the first event, the fund has provided over $200,000 in grants and assisted over 400 patients during their treatment and post-treatment process. 
9114HNC is an all-volunteer led 501(c)(3) nonprofit fund that grants financial aid directly to patients who have or had head and neck cancer (HNC). Unlike many other nonprofit and foundations, 9114HNC does not provide funds for research. Instead, we support individuals and families in the Greater Metropolitan DC area, right where the money was raised. Those who suffer from this disease have to face extraordinary day-to-day challenges in their fight with head and neck cancer, and we focus all our attention on doing what we can to help.
