Former No Limit Rapper Mia X Speaks On Physical, Emotional And Financial Toll Of Uterine Cancer
If you were a No Limit fan back in the day, because pretty much everyone was, I know you remember rapper Mia X. She was the first female lyricist to sign with No Limit Records. It’s been years since she was rapping on “4Ever Tru” or appearing in the film I Got the Hook Up, and X, born Mia Young, has been through a lot. That includes being diagnosed with uterine cancer earlier this year.
A malignant tumor was found that developed in her uterus. Since then, the New Orleans native has made it her mission to raise awareness about “this aggressive hater called Cancer that is trying to kill us.” Just a few days ago, Young took to social media to share what it has been like fighting uterine cancer, including the financial and emotional toll it has taken on her life and the lives of many other women.
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
But as Young stated, she’s determined to not just raise awareness, but also raise funds that can make a difference in cancer research. She recently held a charity fundraiser for the Foundation for Women’s Cancers and is staying strong while encouraging others. We are hopeful for a full recovery for Young.
