Awakening to My Life's Purpose Through Breast Cancer
- #18220 in Biography & Memoir
A breast cancer diagnosis at age thirty-two left Maimah Karmo’s world shattered. She was the survivor of civil unrest in Liberia, a college-educated corporate professional, and a dedicated mother to her young daughter—breast cancer was not part of the plan. How could this happen? With the help of family and friends, Maimah uncovered her own strength, rediscovered her faith in God, and navigated a completely foreign medical world. Through this struggle to reclaim her body and her soul, she learned what was truly important in life—and she didn’t stop there. During recovery, Maimah took a leap of faith and founded the Tigerlily Foundation, an organization that supports young women before, during, and after breast cancer. She had lived through her own journey; now she wanted to help others do the same. This inspiring account covers Maimah’s journey through an exceptional childhood to her experience with cancer that would change her life forever. It is not only a story of love and determination, but also of what can happen when you are given a second chance at life. Fearless illustrates that even when a situation appears to be impossible, true faith—in yourself, in God, and in those you love—will lead you toward the life you always wanted, the life you have a reason to fight for.
