JOHN WAYNE CANCER FOUNDATION

Our Mission

Bringing courage, strength and grit to the fight against cancer.

John Wayne beat lung cancer in 1964. He died 15 years later after a struggle with cancer of the stomach. During this difficult period, he became passionate about helping others fight this terrible disease. To honor his memory, his family created the John Wayne Cancer Foundation (JWCF) with the mission to bring courage, strength and grit to the fight against cancer. JWCF funds novel and innovative programs that improve cancer patients’ outcomes and save lives through research, education, awareness and support. JWCF established the John Wayne Cancer Institute at Saint John’s Health Center in Santa Monica, CA and their research has led to groundbreaking procedures and treatments. JWCF also funds an innovative skin cancer awareness and prevention program for youth called Block the Blaze.
