"At 29 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I realized early on through the support I received that it truly takes an entire community to fight cancer."

Founder & CEO

Cierra Johnson of Fighting Cancer Today with daughter

By taking my experiences along with the shared experiences of others, I realized I didn’t just want to help myself, but I needed to help others as they fought cancer. While I was fighting cancer, Fighting Cancer Today was founded. I realized early on through the support I received that it truly takes an entire community to fight cancer. 

Fighting Cancer Today was formed to create a compassionate community that is a beacon of support to those in need.

Creating a community of love & support.
Board of Directors

Our organization consists of a team of cancer patients, survivors, and caregivers. Through our experiences and the shared experiences of others, we saw the need for additional support after leaving the cancer treatment center for both the patient and the caregiver. We saw the importance of supporting the entire community of the cancer patient. Fighting Cancer Today was created to bridge the gap between the treatment patients receive versus the support needed when home.
