About John Wayne Cancer Foundation
John Wayne beat lung cancer in 1964. Over the next 15 years, before his death from cancer of the stomach in 1979, 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.
The Foundation established the John Wayne Cancer Institute at Saint John's Health Center in Santa Monica, CA, which has led to groundbreaking procedures and treatments. JWCF also funds an innovative skin cancer awareness and prevention program for youth called Block the Blaze.
