Samuel Johnson is an actor, self-confessed cancer vanquisher, Gold Logie Winner and 2018 Victorian Australian of the Year.
In 2013 Sam started a quest to educate all women about the importance of being breast cancer aware by unicycling 15,465 kilometres around Australia. From this, he and his sister Connie Johnson OAM started the Love Your Sister village – a fundraising organisation and support group that has over 500,000 followers. Love Your Sister has now raised over $7 million for cancer research.
Samuel Johnson is a familiar face on Australian television having appeared in The Secret Life of Us and Molly.
Last year Sam publicly announced he is suspending his acting career to focus entirely on raising funds and awareness for cancer research. With the recent passing of Connie to terminal cancer, he is now committed more than ever to reaching his target goal of $10 million raised by Love Your Sister.
In 2018 Samuel Johnson was nominated for Australian of the Year.
