*No Limit Records’ former first lady Mia X has revealed she is battling uterine cancer, and over the past month, Mia, whose real name is Mia Young, has used her Instagram page to educate females about the disease as she works to raise awareness in honor of Uterine Cancer Awareness month.

“Sometimes I pretend like nothing is wrong,” she wrote in a post earlier in the week. “I work smile dance through my worry and pain. I think about women who can’t afford their copay. Their medicine, she wrote earlier in the week. 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.”

As Vibe.com reports, uterine cancer remains underfunded, despite being among the deadliest forms of the disease, Vibe.com

“I can’t begin to explain the pain and discomfort or the way your other organs react to cancer,” she continues. “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.”
