Fearless by Maimah S Karmo is an inspiring book. I read with interest about Maimah’s early life in Liberia, Africa and her adjustment to immigrating to America when political unrest made her home country unsafe. Maimah begins to live the American dream, getting an education, living the “good life.” But when she is diagnosed with breast cancer at only 32, that ME life crumbles.
When she faces this, she says that her “sitcom faith” failed her and she searched for God and understanding.
Maimah does an excellent job of portraying the shock of being diagnosed with cancer and describing the experience of undergoing a lumpectomy, chemo and radiation while still trying to be a mother to her little girl, Noe. In the process, she gains a new purpose for her life, to help others who suffer early breast cancer.
I would recommend this book for anyone who wants to read an inspiraitonal true life story. My only caveat would be that Maimah expresses some New Age spirituality (such as former lives) that I don’t accept. However that didn’t dim my appreciation for her life story and her commitment to helping others through her Tigerlily Foundation.
Note: I received this book free but this is an honest review of the book. I write nothing less!
