Acting legend John Wayne, a chain-smoker since young adulthood, was diagnosed with lung cancer in 1964. He underwent successful surgery to remove his entire left lung and four ribs and called on the public to get preventative exams. While he was declared cancer-free five years later, he eventually died of stomach cancer on June 11, 1979.
