Erica A. Johnson, Executive Director
When Erica’s father was given a ’30 days to live’ cancer diagnosis nearly 25 years ago, finding the connection between health, wellness and cancer became a core mission. After seeing her father overcome the odds and live a healthy, cancer-free lifestyle today, Erica’s mission remains to help all people understand the importance of integrated wellness–especially women, as breast cancer can be linked in many ways to diet, exercise and nutrition.
“Being able to help women really understand that breast cancer is treatable, preventable and curable through non-invasive means is my goal. There’s hope and options beyond surgery–there aren’t enough people that understand non-invasive options exist. At BCCA, we are leading the way to integrated health and wellness in finding the cure to breast cancer.”
Erica is an advocate for non-invasive breast cancer research and focuses on putting the patient first. “Too many times people get caught up with funding only research that they forget there are people who need help today, right now—that’s why our Help Now Fund and non-invasive research funding puts that focus back on the patient.”
Erica enjoys photography, working out, singing, cooking and spending time with her family.
