About the Tigerlily Foundation and Founder Maimah Karmo
Tigerlily Foundation’s mission is to educate, advocate for, empower and provide hands-on support to young women affected by breast cancer. Funds go directly toward educating women and girls in treatment who need financial assistance, meals, buddies, education and empowerment. Founder Maimah Karmo, of Aldie, Virginia, is a breast cancer survivor who was diagnosed at 32. Determined to provide resources to other young women, Karmo founded the Tigerlily Foundation in 2006, and gave it the name of a flower that represents beauty, strength and transformation. She has become an author and activist for her cause and appeared on the “Oprah Winfrey Show” as well as other TV shows.
