In 1993 the Cancer Care Centers of Brevard Foundation was created by Radiation Oncologist, Dr. Silas Charles after it became self-evident that uninsured and underinsured cancer patients, all had a common dilemma...."how to pay their house bills while undergoing treatment". The Foundation assists any cancer patient in Brevard and Indian River counties with rent/mortgage, all utilities, pain and cancer related medication and transportation to and from treatments. This unique method of assisting cancer patients earned the Foundation the 2004 Non Profit Volunteer of the Year organization in 2004. Several grants have been awarded to the Foundation, including Gannett, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, and the Community Foundation for Brevard.
