SANTA MONICA, CA (October 20, 2017) – The John Wayne Cancer Institute Auxiliary (JWCIA) honored Sheryl A. Ross, MD with the Angel Award and Paige More with the Public Service Award at its Annual Membership Luncheon and Boutique, Oct. 19, 2017, at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel.  Prior to the luncheon, guests enjoyed a boutique featuring fine and costume jewelry, clothing, accessories and other items ideal for gift-giving, with a portion of proceeds benefitting the Institute.

Auxiliary board members Marisol Zarco and Katie Lewis, returning as event co-chairs for the fifth consecutive year, welcomed the more than 350 guests, before introducing Sister Maureen Craig, Saint John’s Health Center Foundation chaplain, to offer the invocation.  They went on to welcome to the stage Marc Thaler, a talented young artist and designer, who created “Art with a Purpose” after losing his mother to breast cancer.  The organization translates Thaler’s passion into apparel and art pieces, the sales of which benefit cancer research.

Actor, producer, writer and president and owner of Amplus Real Estate Investment Company, Gerard DiNome returned for his fifth consecutive year as the afternoon’s host, congratulating the John Wayne Cancer Institute Auxiliary for helping to raise more than $20 million for cancer research since its formation in 1982.

Anita Swift, Auxiliary president and granddaughter of John Wayne, noted “Everyone in this room has, in some way, been touched by this disease.  Those of us on the Auxiliary Board are in the very fortunate position of seeing, first-hand, how the money we raise is being used in the on-going battle to conquer it.”  She went on to introduce Trevan D. Fischer, MD, Assistant Professor of Surgical Oncology and Assistant Program Director of the Complex Surgical Oncology Fellowship program, to announce the JWCIA’s Fellowship Funding Initiative.

John Wayne Cancer Institute Board Chairman and son of John Wayne, Patrick Wayne joined Swift and Fischer on stage to accept a check for $317,184 from the Auxiliary.  “It’s so gratifying,” said Wayne, “to look around this room, to see old friends and new and to know that we share a challenge.  There truly is strength in numbers and I know we won’t stop until we find a cure!”

Wendy Burch, Emmy Award-winning reporter and anchor for KTLA, presented the 2017 Angel Award to Sheryl A. Ross MD, aka “Dr. Sherry,” an award-winning OBGYN, entrepreneur, author and women’s health expert who has been practicing OB/GYN for 25 years in Santa Monica.  Author of the book, she-ology: The Definitive Guide to Women’s Intimate Health. Period., Dr. Sherry is co-founder of Cycl, the first of its kind wellness brand for women by women based on the seven distinct and individualized cycles women experience in their lives.  Her mission is to change the narrative of how women talk and learn about their intimate health and overall well-being.  For more information, please visit drsherry.com.

Anita Swift presented the 2017 Public Service Award to cancer survivor Paige More who underwent a preventative double mastectomy after finding out she had the BRCA 1 genetic mutation.  More was 24 years old and felt anxious, alone and afraid.  She started to document her experience on social media to share her story and raise awareness with women like her younger sister who had yet to be tested and countless others. Compelled to prevent other women like herself from feeling alone during this journey, she formed a group she calls Breasties. Through social media, More rallied a community of fearless young women who have been affected by breast cancer.  She has organized events around the country to empower each other in a loving and supportive environment, without having to go to a formal support group or a clinical setting.  “I beat cancer before it had a chance to beat me,” said More, who wears her scars with pride.

About the John Wayne Cancer Institute at Providence Saint John’s Health Center

Since 1981, the family of John Wayne has been committed to pioneering cancer research in memory of their father, who died of cancer. For more than 30 years, the courageous and dedicated researchers at the John Wayne Cancer Institute have made groundbreaking discoveries that have changed the way cancer is detected, diagnosed and treated around the world. Today the tradition of excellence continues as the Institute spearheads new research advances, while training the next generation of leaders in the fight against cancer through its renowned Surgical Oncology Fellowship Program. The Institute’s programs focus on melanoma, breast, neuro, prostate and gastrointestinal cancers, as well as innovative research in cancer genomics, molecular biomarkers, and chemo- and immunotherapies. With its unique ability to rapidly turn scientific discoveries into novel approaches for early detection and treatment, the Institute provides immediate hope to cancer patients everywhere. 

About the John Wayne Cancer Institute Auxiliary

Established in 1982 by two breast cancer survivors, the John Wayne Cancer Institute Auxiliary is currently helmed by president Anita Swift, granddaughter of John Wayne. The Auxiliary has raised more than $20 million to fund a wide array of the Institute’s priorities including groundbreaking research, vital new laboratory equipment and the nationally renowned Surgical Oncology Fellowship Program, which trains the next generation of surgical oncologists.
