Liberian refugee Maimah Karmo was diagnosed with Stage 2 breast cancer when she was 32 years old. She had no family history of breast cancer. She was blindsided.
While she was still undergoing intense treatment, Maimah, who shared her story on The Oprah Winfrey Show in 2008, made a remarkable decision. After her second round of chemotherapy and a promise to God that she would devote her life to advocate for breast cancer awareness, Maimah founded the Tigerlily Foundation, which has more than 300 volunteers nationwide.
Here, find out how Maimah is doing today following her eight-year battle with breast cancer.
