John Wayne, The Duke, is an American icon and a picture of American strength.. There were few movie stars bigger than John Wayne, and even today he remains one of the most popular and recognizable figures in the world. John Wayne beat lung cancer in 1964. Between that victory and his death from cancer of the stomach in 1979, he used his passion to help 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.
Prizeo, the leader in online sweepstakes and experiences, has partnered with JWCF to launch a fundraising campaign within the #ShowYourGrit movement to take John Wayne’s message of hope global and encourage people to fight the disease with courage, strength and grit.
