      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

      education programs and support groups.

      MISSION & VALUES
      John Wayne Cancer Institute at Saint John’s Health Center
      is a cancer research institute dedicated to the understanding
      and curing of cancer in order to eliminate patient suffering worldwide.
      Our mission is accomplished through innovative clinical and laboratory
      research and the education of the next generation of surgical oncologists and scientists.

      How Do We Achieve Our Mission?
      * By conducting innovative research focusing on biological mechanisms
      to provide new understandings of the cause, diagnosis, control,
      and cure of cancer.
      * By training the next generation of surgical scientists who study and treat cancer.
      * By researching unique experimental treatment services, to rapidly develop
      and test new forms of diagnosis and therapy in order to improve
      the quality of life and expected survival of those afflicted with cancer.

      History & Overview
      Since 1981, the John Wayne name has been committed by the Wayne Family
      to leading-edge cancer research and education, in memory of their father
      who died of stomach cancer in 1979.
      The Institute, previously known as the John Wayne Cancer Clinic at UCLA,
      was formed by the Wayne Foundation and headed by eldest son Michael.
      Over the next decade, Michael Wayne served as Chairman of the Board –
      a position he held until his death in 2003.
      Patrick Wayne,
      Michael’s brother, now serves as Chairman of the Board
      and provides continued determination toward the family’s goal of curing this dreaded disease.

      In 1991, the John Wayne Cancer Institute (JWCI)
      launched a successful affiliation with Saint John’s Health Center
      and opened in Santa Monica, California. Combined with the exceptional quality
      of Saint John’s medical staff and hospital, a unique cancer institute was created,
      outstanding in the areas of translational research,
      and the treatment of solid tumors including surgical oncology,
      immunotherapy, chemotherapy, and radiation.



      Today, the tradition of excellence continues as JWCI spearheads
      new research advances while training the next generation of surgical oncologists.
      The Institute conducts multidisciplinary basic, clinical and translational research
      on many complex cancer problems, focusing in particular on melanoma, breast cancer,
      prostate cancer, colon cancer, neuroendocrine cancer,
      gastro-intestinal cancer and sarcoma.

      With renowned researchers and advanced technologies, JWCI
      has the unique ability to quickly and effectively react, explore, and investigate
      life-saving cancer treatments. Developed at the Institute,
      the Sentinel Node Biopsy is one such treatment.
      Now considered the worldwide standard of care for melanoma and breast cancer,
      the Sentinel Node Biopsy has revolutionized treatment options by offering
      a minimally invasive technique to determine the spread of tumor cells.

      While there have there have been many advances in scientific knowledge
      and therapeutic modalities, surgery still remains the most frequently used
      and single most effective treatment of solid tumors.
      JWCI’s surgical oncology fellowship program was developed to train
      and educate world-class surgeons who through their research find solutions
      to currently unsolved cancer problems. Recognized as one of only 16
      training programs in the United States approved by the Society of Surgical Oncology,
      the program has trained over 100 surgical oncologists and remains a leader
      in surgical oncology education.

      Macmillan 4x4 UK Challenge
      The Mac 4x4 is a long-distance, annual, four-wheel drive navigational endurance event
      in aid of
      Macmillan Cancer Support
      that has taken place every March since 2002.
      Starting in the West Midlands and covering up to 1000 miles on and off road
      in less than three days.

      Marisa Wayne, the youngest daughter of legendary Hollywood icon John Wayne
      will fly over from California to compete in the 10th anniversary run of the Macmillan 4x4 UK
      challenge over the weekend of 3rd - 6th March 2011 as a co-driver in ‘Team Duke’,
      one of the Beds, Herts and Cambs Land Rover Club (BHCLRC) teams.
      Marisa will compete in a 1995 300Tdi Defender in this special run of the event
      which also marks the 100th anniversary of Macmillan.

      Marisa’s participation will help raise awareness of the event and subsequently
      boost sponsorship opportunities, all of which goes directly to Macmillan.
      The Mac 4x4 currently raises over £100,000 per year for Macmillan Cancer Support,
      with a grand total of approximately £600,000 to date.

      Marisa enters the event as an ambassador for the John Wayne Cancer Foundation (JWCF),
      in acknowledgement of the two charities respective roles in cancer related support and research.

      John Wayne survived lung cancer in 1964, but died 15 years later after a battle
      with cancer of the stomach.
      During this difficult period, he became passionate about helping
      others fight this terrible disease.
      To honour his memory, his family created the John Wayne Cancer Foundation (JWCF)
      to bring “courage, strength and grit” to the fight against cancer.

      programs and support groups, and is aligned with like-minded groups and non-profit
      organisations that advance the fight against cancer.
      JWCF has also been committed to groundbreaking cancer research
      and education at the John Wayne Cancer Institute (JWCI).
