ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION
Pursuit of Mind. Body. Spirit.
Tigerlily Foundation began with a promise that founder Maimah Karmo made to herself after being diagnosed with breast cancer as a young woman still in treatment. She vowed, if she survived, to help young women transform their cancer diagnosis as a catalyst for discovering their own life's purpose and passion. Our programs provide young women of diverse backgrounds, including those with heightened risk, minority groups and those with less access to care with hands-on support, empowerment and advocacy for breast health and wellness. Our mission is to end disparities among young breast cancer survivors and patients and to improve the quality of life for young breast cancer survivors and thrivers by creating a community of vigilant self-advocates.
Tigerlily Foundation educates, empowers, advocates for and supports young women before, during and after breast cancer. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and although educating our community about breast health and wellness is important, we also believe that coming together to provide real hands-on support, while also advocating on behalf of young women in all stages of breast cancer and fighting to eliminate disparities is key to our mission.
We need your help to continue providing support services including Hope Boxes, New Normal Journals, daily virtual health and wellness classes, SPIRIT resources, mental health webinars, guidebooks, podcasts and so much more.
