WHO WE ARE
Tigerlily Foundation is a national women’s health and oncology organization providing education, awareness, advocacy and hands-on support to young women (15-45) – before, during and after cancer.
To educate, advocate for, empower, and support young women, before, during and after cancer.
We envision a future where a cancer diagnosis doesn’t inspire fear, but ignites hope for a future because:
We can inspire young women to transform inside and out as they journey through treatment to live their best life going forward.
We empower young women to be advocates for change
Cancer will no longer be a terminal disease, but become a chronic disease that will someday be cured.
We will end disparities – of age, stage and color, in our lifetime.
We focus on health, wellness and risk reduction as a lifestyle – supported by integrative and traditional medicine.
Through our programs, we seek to educate and empower women of all backgrounds, including those at heightened risk, those facing health disparities, and those with less access to care. We strive to improve the quality of life and end isolation among cancer survivors. Most importantly, we encourage and endeavor to empower women at every stage of their health journey, and to show them that they are not alone, but are beautiful, strong like the tiger and the lily, and that they can be transformed – during and after cancer.
