About the Founder
Diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 42, Marsha Johnson is on a mission to embrace her new position as an entrepreneur by owning and running her nonprofit organization, Fashions for the Cure.
Marsha's initial mammogram report revealed no signs of cancer, whereas the follow-up with a biopsy detected there was. Scary of the thought of what would have been the outcome had she opt out to have the biopsy. It always helps to seek a second opinion.
Founded in 2005, Fashions for the Cure has proven to be just what she needed to share with others her therapeutic strategy when dealing with a life-threatening disease such as breast cancer.
Giving back to the community through her cancer awareness annual celebration events, Fashions for the Cure provides the platform for medical professionals and inspirational speakers to be apart of an event to share their professions and speak to an audience of survivors, their caregivers, family, coworkers, and friends on issues that matters to us all, the importance of early detection of cancer so we all can be proactive in caring not only for ourselves but one another.
Marsha shares her self claimed theraphy, coping with the aniexties one would have having being diagnosed with cancer. On the fashion runway where the excitement allows us to let go of our fears at least for that moment in time.
Survivors agree to walk the fashion runway in honor of themselves or in remembrance of those they knew who lost the battle. In 2013, her family, walked the runway in remembrance of her grandson, who lost the battle at age 3 to leukemia in 2012. As you can see, cancer does not discriminate and neither does the fashions runway which has opened the door to promote all cancer matters on the runway. September is the designated month for early childhood cancer awareness. An event was created in remembrance of her beloved grandson.
Having this high passion for fashion, she uses this as her means to cope and deal with the anxieties one would have after being diagnosed with cancer. As of 01/2023 She is passed the 5-year mark. Although the thought of reoccurrence will always be in the back of her mind, being an 18-year survivor is something to give praise and celebrate for. Marsha is committed to continue with the mission to support others.
No individual is exempt from this terrible disease. Cancer does not discriminate. Remain alert and do your research for signs to watch out for.
Unexplainable coughs, itch, moles, pain, and fatigue can very well be that early sign you missed. Stop cancer in the first stage not letting it progress to the 4th stage.
Mark your calendar with an scheduled appointment, Go to your appointment, Follow up with your appointment. You’ll be glad you did.
Early detection is monumental to higher survival rates and great treatment options to fight with everything you have.
