, she is so inspiring to me and so many others around the world. Maimah’s story began in Liberia, West Africa, where she was born. After surviving two wars in her native country of Liberia, during a third coup d’état, she fled to the United States at 15 years old, after her father put her on a plane, alone, to avoid persecution due to the war. She worked her way through college and created her version of the American Dream. Maimah was raising a beautiful 3-year old when she was diagnosed with aggressive breast cancer. She had no family history and was 32-years old. While in treatment, Maimah made a promise to God that if she survived, she would create an organization to educate, empower, advocate for and support young women affected by breast cancer. After her second treatment, Tigerlily Foundation
was born. Using cancer as a catalyst, Maimah left her full-time, high-salaried job with a global organization to follow her soul’s purpose. She has been instrumental in helping to pass critical pieces of breast health legislation in Congress. She has become a media spokesperson for women’s health, empowerment, advocacy, and change. In 2012, Maimah published Fearless: Awakening to My Life’s Purpose Through Breast Cancer
