John Wayne Cancer Institute Receives $380k From QVC For Breast Cancer Research:

The Fashion Footwear Association of New York (FFANY) and QVC selected the John Wayne Cancer Institute at Providence Saint John’s Health Center as one of the nine beneficiaries of the 2014 event. FFANY and QVC representatives presented a check in the amount of $380,000 to Patrick Wayne, son of the legendary John Wayne and chairman of the John Wayne Cancer Institute board of directors, who accepted the donation on behalf of the organization.

Funding from QVC Presents “FFANY Shoes on Sale” enables scientists at the Institute to advance breast cancer research in the areas of early detection through blood tests, personalized medicine through nano-technology and therapies that activate the immune system to fight against breast cancer.

Since its inception, QVC Presents “FFANY Shoes on Sale” has sold more than 1.7 million pairs of shoes and generated more than $47 million to benefit leading breast cancer research and education institutions. Designated as the event’s “Special Pink Benefactors,” Nine West Group, Caleres, Camuto Group and Marc Fisher Footwear each donated pairs of shoes worth more than $500,000. Their contributions included brands such as Nine West, Anne Klein, Easy Spirit, Via Spiga, Franco Sarto, Naturalizer, Vince Camuto, VC Signature, Jessica Simpson, Guess, Tommy Hilfiger and Ivanka Trump.

The John Wayne Cancer Institute is a part of QVC’s “FFANY Shoes on Sale” once more this fall at the Waldorf Astoria New York.

For more information about supporting this event, which helps to benefit breast cancer research at the Margie and Robert E. Petersen Breast Cancer Research Program at John Wayne Cancer Institute, contact Andy Trilling, vice president of principal gifts at 310.315.6111.
