Mia X, a former First Lady with No Limit Records, has revealed she’s battling uterine cancer. And she has taken it as a responsibility to sensitize people on the ailment, using her Instagram page.
The 46-year-old rapper whose real name is Mia Young, says she’s working hard to educate females on the disease as the world celebrates Uterine Cancer Awareness month.
Mia, a songwriter and actress who was the first female rap MC to sign a contract with Master P’s No Limit Records, wrote in an Instagram message: “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,” she added.
The mom-of-one continues: “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.”
