21st Century C.A.R.E. - 21st Century C.A.R.E. is a not-for-profit charitable foundation dedicated to cancer patients. The foundation was originally established in 1996 by Dr. Charles Thomas in Asheville, NC when a grateful patient bequeathed a generous sum for the purpose of providing cancer education in the community. In January 2007, a new Board of Directors was elected and the headquarters was moved to Fort Myers, Florida. The new Board has ambitious plans to further the 21st Century C.A.R.E. mission of providing cancer patient assistance, education programs including cancer screening, support groups, and contributing to vital cancer research.
