Rapper Mia X, whose real name is Mia Young, has been diagnosed with Uterine Cancer. It was diagnosed fairly early, and she’s fighting. We pray that it turns out well.
Mia X is a rapper, singer-songwriter and actress. She was the first female emcee to get a contract with rapper and entertainment magnate, Master P on his successful record label No Limit Records. She has collaborated with several No Limit Records artists, including Master P and Silkk the Shocker on the seminal albums Ghetto D and Charge It 2 Da Game.
She’s also well known for speaking out socially and politically.
Sometimes I pretend like nothing is wrong. I work smile dance through my worry and pain. I think about women who can’t afford their copay. Their medicine. The additional cost for seeing specialist. Women who leave radiation therapy and go to work because they still have bills. I think about the harsh reality of the statistics. Add 5 years 10 years to your age and then say Damn!That’s still young though. Women with cancer worry about their children spouse extended family and friends. Sometimes we keep stuff to ourselves because the look in someone’s eyes who love you is too much. I always say that a woman’s body is the gateway to heaven. It is the bond between God and us. Miracles happen in our bodies. Conception Birth Life. I can’t begin to explain the pain and discomfort or the way your other organs react to cancer. Uterine Cancer kills women Every Day. Yet it is one of the most under studied under researched and underfunded. No matter God’s plan for me I’m ok but I want to make sure that I help as many women as I can. Please visit foundationforwomenscancer.org You can even make a donation in my name. If you can come out Saturday and help me fight for myself and others. All proceeds at the bar will go to The Foundation For Womens Cancer #UterineCancerAwarenessMonth #IWearPeachForMia #FightLikeAMadGirl #FindTheCure
