CCN with Jenn Cochran:

Episode 21 MaimaH Karmo

Welcome to episode 21 of the Cancer Cliff Notes with Jenn Cochran. My guest this week is Maimah Karmo. She is the Founder/CEO of the Tigerlily Foundation (Tigerlily) and a thirteen-year survivor of breast cancer. On February 28, 2006, at 4:45 p.m., Maimah was diagnosed with Stage 2 breast cancer. She had no family history and was 32-years old. While undergoing her second round of chemotherapy, she made a promise to God that if she survived, she would create an organization to educate, empower, advocate for and support young women affected by breast cancer. After her second treatment, Tigerlily Foundation was born. Tigerlily is a national organization, with hundreds of volunteers nationwide, providing breast health, wellness and transformational programs to young women.
