The Carefree Foundation
The Carefree Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with aspirations to improve care on all seven continents. The organization was founded with two primary objectives. First and foremost, it is our goal to eliminate the social, geographic, and economic barriers that limit people’s access to quality medical care. Our second goal is to help improve the environments in which treatment is rendered. We believe that all people deserve access to high-quality care, regardless of their social or financial situations. In addition, through our efforts to improve the environment of care - by helping facilities become clean, bright, and cheerful - we hope to inspire confidence and optimism in both patients receiving treatment and their families and loved ones.
