Yahel Johnson is an American actress and film critic from Austin, TX who was diagnosed with bone cancer November 15, 2012. After being diagnosed, she refused chemotherapy and opted for a healthy approach by way of The Gerson Therapy. She spends healing time researching her chosen field with the assistance of Netflix, Hulu and the occasional theater trip. Her natural journey through bone cancer’s attempt at her life has left her with a partially paralyzed arm she is currently nursing back to normalcy. Since she is unable to currently express her talents through her first love of acting she has taken to expressing herself in other ways such as the Cinematic Black Planet podcast and this personal blog Life on Gerson.
