John Wayne Cancer Foundation presents the 2nd Annual Sean Hunter Research in Action Walk, benefitting The John Wayne Cancer Institute at Providence Saint John’s Health Center.
This event was created by Sean's mother, Michele, together with family and friends, after Sean's diagnosis of inoperable brain cancer at the age of 20. Net proceeds from the event benefit BRAIN CANCER RESEARCH at the John Wayne Cancer Institute under the direction of Dr. Santosh Kesari, MD, PhD.
Sean passed away just weeks after the inaugural walk in 2017, but his legacy of LOVE lives on through family, friends and community members who continue to fight for a cure.

BRINGING COURAGE, STRENGTH, AND GRIT TO THE FIGHT AGAINST CANCER.
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.
The John Wayne Cancer Foundation established the John Wayne Cancer Institute at Saint John's Health Center in Santa Monica, CA and their research has led to groundbreaking procedures and treatments. JWCF also funds an innovative skin cancer awareness and prevention program for youth called Block the Blaze.
We're taking John Wayne's message of hope global to help fight cancer. Our innovating fundraising programs #ShowYourGrit, Team John Wayne, and Join John Wayne are geared towards raising funds and creating awareness. Join the John Wayne Movement!
