John Wayne Cancer Foundation + John Wayne Stock & Supply Join Forces with Project Angel Food to Feed L.A. Cancer Patients During Pandemic.
Never on to back down from a fight for what’s right, John Wayne battled cancer twice – and made sure that his kids knew he wanted them to continue the battle, in his name. They’ve done just that at the John Wayne Cancer Foundation since 1985.
Now, the John Wayne Cancer Foundation team is saddling up and joining forces with Project Angel Food to fight on a new front – ensuring that cancer patients in Los Angeles continue to receive much-needed free meal deliveries during the COVID-19 pandemic.
John Wayne Stock & Supply, an online store that sells branded John Wayne merchandise, is now offering a special t-shirt to support this effort, with 50% of proceeds going to Project Angel Food (25% of the PAF’s clients are cancer patients). The “Quote Tee” is a unisex style and is available in black or white with one of John Wayne’s most famous and inspiring quotes — “Give the American people a good cause and there’s nothing they can’t lick.” — emblazoned on it.
“My dad would be proud of this campaign, as he was always a champion for cancer patients and those who needed help most,” said Ethan Wayne, John Wayne’s son and Chairman of the John Wayne Cancer Foundation. “Our tea, in partnership with John Wayne Stock & Supply and Project Angel Food, is ready to ride into this battle and fight for some of the people who are most vulnerable in the COVID-19 pandemic.”
