Today we have a special guest with us. Maimah Karmo author of Fearless: Awakening to My Life’s Purpose Through Breast Cancer.

The story of Maimah Karmo is already inspiring. A survivor of civil unrest in Liberia, she became a college educated professional and a dedicated mother to her daughter. Breast cancer at thirty-two wasn’t a part of her life’s plan. Naturally she wondered how it happened to her and she was left with a lot of questions. Instead of journeying into a dark place with the help of family, friends and God, she was able to discover her strength and navigated her way through a completely foreign medical world. It was through this struggle to reclaim her body and her soul that she learned what was truly important in life—and she didn’t stop there.

Her book is an inspiring account of her journey through childhood to a journey with breast cancer that would change her life forever. It is not only a story of love and determination, but also of what can happen when you are given a second chance at life. Fearless illustrates that even when life begins to appear impossible, true faith—in yourself, in God, and in those you love—will lead you toward the life you always wanted, the life you have a reason to fight for.
