Our Mission

Support our mission by creating your own fundraiser.

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) to bring courage, strength and grit to the fight against cancer.

Since its founding in 1985, the JWCF has supported research, awareness, education, and survivorship groups, and is aligned with like-minded groups and non-profits that are advancing the fight against cancer. JWCF has also been committed to groundbreaking cancer research and education at the John Wayne Cancer Institute.

 Check out all of the great programs that JWCF supports.

Join Team DUKE as we train and fundraise for the 2013 OC Marathon & Half Marathon in Costa Mesa/Newport Beach on May 5th, 2013.

Team DUKE is John Wayne Cancer Foundation's Athlete Fundraising Program. You can Join Team DUKE and particpate with your own event any time.

The JWCF will continue the fight its namesake started.
