The Hicks Foundation


We work to educate and link women and men with affordable health services to prevent the spread of HPV using vaccines, detect HPV in before it leads to cancer, and catch cancer early. Allison Hicks was diagnosed with advanced cervical cancer at the age of 29. Within days of the diagnosis she underwent radical surgery. Allison saw this experience as a call to action. Within months of completing chemotherapy and radiation treatment she started the Hicks Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to eradicating cervical cancer in Vermont.
