About Tigerlily Foundation
Tigerlily Foundation is one of the only organizations in the nation providing assistance to young women (15-45) before, during and after breast cancer. Founder Maimah Karmo works in legislation and community to ensure proper research and funding is being allocated to breast cancer initiatives. More than 18,000 young women are diagnosed with breast cancer annually, and approximately ten percent die of the disease. Tigerlily Foundation exists to decrease this disparity. Guided by the motto, "Beauty, Strength and Transformation", the Tigerlily Foundation aims to change lives. www.tigerlilyfoundation.org
