Breast Cancer Charities of America

The Breast Cancer Charities of America is successful largely due to the dedication and commitment made behind the scenes. We’re proud of each and every person who makes our organization what it is.

Erica Johnson, Founder

After working for years in the television industry in Los Angeles and then rising the corporate ladder in the oil & gas industry, Erica found that her passion for empowering women, giving back and helping others was missing from her everyday work. In 2009, she left her corporate America job and started iGoPink & The Breast Cancer Charities of America; since then, the organization has grown to serve over 520 hospitals nationwide and a global reach that educates and empowers millions of women every year to prevent and survive breast cancer.

“We get by what we give. I believe we are put here to serve others in all that we do. The message of hope, health, and healing is what we provide at BCCA. Together, we empower young women to be educated on preventing breast cancer, while supporting those who face the disease, to survive and thrive after breast cancer.”

Outside of iGoPink, you can find Erica spending time with her husband, their 2-year-old daughter and 70lb yellow lab fur-baby. Together they enjoy traveling, remodeling homes, tennis, golf and all things culinary.

Alix Josey, Executive Director

Alix comes from a health and community health programming background. She received both her Master’s and Bachelor’s degree in health from Texas A&M University. Alix’s health education experience ranges across sectors, from governmental health programs to higher education experience and then the non-profit world. It is with The Breast Cancer Charities of America that Alix knew the non-profit sector and serving others was her true passion in life. Alix started with BCCA in 2016 and since then has grown its program services exponentially, educating and serving millions of those who have been touched by breast cancer.

“We are here to truly serve those who have been touched by breast cancer. We all work to educate, support, and empower all for The Breast Cancer Charities of America’s mission of preventing and surviving breast cancer. I believe BCCA is unique in not only the programs we offer but in the passion, each of our staff has for serving.”

Outside of the BCCA office, Alix loves spending time with her husband, traveling, trying new foods, rooting on our favorite sports teams and exercising. She also enjoys long walks and snuggles with her two Australian Shepherds
