The momcologist

Our Founder

Christina Johnson is a sought out Certified Life Coach, Motivational Speaker, Author and Childhood Cancer Advocate who truly believes that life’s inevitable challenges are an opportunity to pause, pray and reflect. 

Not only surviving but thriving even in the midst of unexpected change, challenges and adversity. In 2017 while finishing up her degree, her son David at the age of 1 years old, was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma, a Pediatric Cancer. She advocated for her son as well as others throughout his journey. At that moment , she became, “The Momcologist.”

 A Momcologist is a full-time advocate , part-time doctor and nurse for a child fighting cancer. Her personal journal turned into a book highlighting the emotional and physical struggles she encountered on this journey. “Fighting for King David” is a glimpse into Christina’s world as a Momcologist. Her story of thriving is one that she can tell through many chapters. No matter the challenge, 

Christina has continued to reinvent herself by always looking forward to living and making everyday count. For the past two years Christina has put audiences to ease while inspiring them through her personal story. Audiences ranging from cancer survivors, fighters, healthcare professionals and caregivers. 

Whether a keynote speaker, panelist, or host,  Christina continues to inspire her audience with her gifts of honesty, courage hope and laughter. As a need to fulfill her passion for advocacy, the Momcologist Foundation, 501(c)(3) non profit organization was launched. Their mission is empower, educate and provide resources and support for Childhood Cancer families.

From Tragedy to Triumph, Christina has overcame many obstacles. As Christina would say, “Plant a seed of awareness and watch it grow.”
