Maimah Karmo: Cancer Disparities in the Black Community

Today on the show, another Wayback Machine throwback episode with my dear friend and fellow survivor advocate Maimah Karmo, Maimah an author, speaker, coach, podcaster, manifestor, convener, Founder/CEO of the Tigerlily Foundation and, well, — she’s a unicorn. Basically, she’s just a unicorn so let’s just leave it at then. Join us as we take a trip down memory lane to a time before iPhones, Android, Facebook, Twitter, and the original Kung Fu Panda. Yes, I am talking about 2007 and the dawn of the young adult cancer movement. From Liberian refugee to misdiagnosed triple-negative breast cancer patient, to self-proclaimed “chemo-induced nonprofit founder,” Maimah has been a dominant voice speaking out on the issues of healthcare disparities and invisible suffering in the black community. There’s pretty much nothing Maimah can’t do — and you’re about to understand why. Enjoy the show. Visit for more information.
