Who are Love Your Sister?
Samuel Johnson, Gold Logie winning actor, advocate, and recent winner of Dancing with The Stars, is continuing his tour of Australia. He has raised $10m having campaigned at over 800 community events. His next-level community engagement strategy involves marquee fundraisers, school visits, parlour sessions, street presence, community meetings, hospital visits and tap-dancing lessons! ‘Love Your Sister’ is a million-strong village of everyday Aussies committed to vanquishing all cancers with hard science.
It started with a dare. Co-Founder Connie Johnson dared her younger brother, actor Samuel Johnson to unicycle around the country in the face of her terminal diagnosis with breast cancer. Their aim? To remind every mum in the land to check their boobs. Love Your Sister proudly passes on every individual donation to scientific research.
“Cancer is the last true riddle of our times and we know that it can only be solved with hard science. Despite federal funding remaining static for a decade, Australia still boasts the best clinical results for breast cancer in the whole world. We are the best with less. Imagine what we could do with more?”
– Samuel Johnson, OAM
