Our History is His Story
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.
