Mia X is a legend. The first lady of No Limit was also the first signee, meaning Master P thought enough of her to be the foundation on which he’d build his empire. Now, the New Orleans legend finds herself involved in a different kind of fight, no one should have to go through — cancer.
For those that don’t know, earlier this year Mia told the world she’s been diagnosed with uterine cancer. While every type of cancer is serious, uterine is certainly one of the most deadly with the lowest survival rate. But you don’t need me to tell you that, as her beautiful Instagram post details her experience with getting treatment, moments of despair, and ultimately the hope she has that she’ll be one of the few to survive:
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
Rather than wallow in her situation, she’s doing what she can to bring attention to the affliction in hope of finding a cure. The sad thing about human beings is that we don’t always notice bad things until they happen to someone close to us or someone famous. Maybe it’s more indicative of our society rather than the human condition. But maybe that’s for someone smarter than me to determine.
I lost my mom to breast cancer so I’ve seen this fight up close and personal. It sucks. But it’s made a lot easier when you have people close to you supporting you at every step. If you’re a fan of Mia or just a fan of people, you should visit her Instagram page and just take a look at how she’s chronicling her journey and the warm thoughts and well-wishes she’s gotten from friends and family. Send her your prayers and send her your love.
