Aloha & Welcome to HCCF

Hawaii Children’s Cancer Foundation (HCCF) is the only organization in Hawaii whose exclusive focus is children with cancer and their families. The Foundation is dedicated to the children who are battling cancer, to those who have survived, and to those who survive in our hearts. All of HCCF’s funds stay in Hawaii to help families cope with childhood cancer.
