“You are an inspiration to many. Continue to change the world.”
– Oprah Winfrey

Thank you for your profound speech. When it comes to the part of your speech regarding you fears and God’s plans for your life, please consider this: “Don’t be afraid, for I have ransomed you; I have called you by name; you are mine. When you go through deep waters and great trouble, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown! When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up—the flames will not consume you. For I am the Lord your God, your Savior, the Holy One of Israel”, (Isa. 43:1b-3a). Also, “Fear not, for I am with you. Do not be dismayed. I am your God. I will strengthen you; I will help you; I will uphold you with my victorious right hand. I am holding you by your right hand—I, the Lord your God—and I say to you, Don’t be afraid; I am here to help you”, (Isa. 41:10,13). I lost my first wife and mother of my 2 daughters to meta-static breast cancer. Cancer is so devastating. Blessings to you and your foundation!

Maimah Karmo is the kind of speaker who can get people to follow her wherever she decides to lead. She can move you to tears but also carries herself with the steely elegance that makes women feel like, “I can do it. I WILL survive.” She may not have wanted to be the poster child for breast cancer but when cancer chose her it chose a formidable enemy.
