Tigerlily founder and CEO Maimah Karmo is a triple-negative breast cancer survivor. She was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer at only 32 years old with no prior family history. With no targeted treatment for triple-negative, she overcame her fears and worries by stepping into action to create what’s now Tigerlily Foundation. She wanted young women like herself with the disease to know whatever the diagnosis, it doesn’t own you – you decide how to live your life despite it.
