The Hicks Foundation provides free Cervical Cancer Screening throughout Vermont in areas of significant need. With the help of local providers women who are rarely or never screened can receive a full physical, breast exam, pap test, HPV DNA test and the HPV vaccine.

The Hicks Foundation recently launched "Mission Possible," a series of local gatherings of women that encourage dialogue about women's health while providing a Doctor to answer medical questions and Hicks staff to facilitate the conversation and link women with further health and education services. Through these gathering the Hicks Foundation plans to reach every woman in Vermont to take control of her health care and remain cervical cancer free. Contact us if you're interested in hosting your own Mission Possible event: emily@freepap.org

The Hicks Foundation also acts as an advocate for policy and legislation that allow women and girls to have access to the HPV Vaccine and affordable medical care.

Allison Hicks was diagnosed with advanced cervical cancer at the age of 29. Within days of the diagnosis she underwent radical surgery that left her unable to bear children. Allison’s trauma was particularly intense because she is a trained doula, working to care for mothers and babies. After extensive treatment Allison transformed her personal struggle into action and created The Hicks Foundation so no woman would have to go through what she endured.
