Tune in as we talk with the Maimah Karmo founder of the Tigerlily Foundation. The Tigerlily Foundation is a organization geared to educate, empower, advocate for, support and inspire young women affected by breast cancer. Guest Bio - Maimah Karmo is a mother, daughter, sister, niece, cousin, friend and author. She is also a breast cancer survivor. On February 28, 2006, at 4:45 p.m., she was diagnosed with Stage 2breast cancer. She had no family history of breast cancer; and was only 32-years old. She had been doing all the right things – exercising, taking her vitamins and eating healthy. She didn’t fit the profile. She had been told by her doctor that she was too young to get breast cancer. How could this have happened? She didn't know the answer to that question, but she knew that her life would never be the same again. In May, after she had been given her second chemotherapy treatment, she decided to create an organization that would empower, educate, support and end isolation for young women affected by breast cancer. The organization was named Tigerlily Foundation (Tigerlily).
