On Thursday, June 10th in Newport Beach, members of the John Wayne Cancer Foundation were humbled to receive a donation of over $200,000 from the John Wayne Cancer Institute Auxiliary Group.

This particular auxiliary group is a mighty group of women who have worked tirelessly over the years to raise money for cancer treatment and research. From planning galas to recruiting donations and connecting our mission to the community at large, this group has been invaluable.  The John Wayne Cancer Foundation would like to specifically call out the efforts of Michele Barnum, Hollace Brown, Allison Clago, Terry Curtin, Ilene Eisenberg, Diane Feldman, Janine Gershon-Friedberg, Maddy Gordon, Martha Harper, Mona Horton, Cyndi Hunt, Gloria Lamont, Katie Lewis, Shirley Lipstone, Merritt Loughran, Lorraine Morton, Melinda Wayne Muñoz, Roberta Novick, Beth Rawjee, Lois Rosen, Sheri Rosenblum, Ada Sands, Anita Swift, Susan Veerman, Marisa Wayne, Ruth Weil, Marisol Zarco, and Andrea Zuckerman. Thank you for all you've done in the fight against cancer!
