In this article we consider an abstract Cauchy problem with the Hilfer fractional derivative and an almost sectorial operator. We introduce a suitable definition of a mild solution for this evolution equation and establish the existence result for a mild solution. We also give an example to highlight the applicability of theoretical results established.
