Our Commitment to Cancer Research—and to You

Cancer is the second-leading cause of death in the country, accounting for almost one in four deaths. This year an estimated 585,720 Americans will be lost to the disease. The devastation caused by cancer is unacceptable. That’s why my family and I remain steadfast in our fight against the illness. When you support the John Wayne Cancer Institute, you can be assured that our physicians and researchers feel the same way you do about eliminating the pain and suffering linked to cancer. Cancer research and patient care is not just a career choice, it’s a calling that drives us to do everything we can to unlock the mysteries of cancer and produce better outcomes for patients. The stories in this issue of Innovations describe the Institute’s commitment to excellence. From the dedication to translational research to the training of our fellows to the creation of the Brain Tumor Center Skull Base and Endoscopic Microdissection Laboratory, the Institute faculty is leading the way toward a brighter future. Your generosity and support make such progress possible. Thank you for joining us as partners in the fight to cure cancer.

Patrick Wayne
Chairman of the Board of Directors
