Meechy's Personal Message Below:
Wow! Today marks my 1 year anniversary when my life changed forever. Tax Day, I remember sitting down with my Mum over a bowl of gumbo at Cooper's Hawk discussing my future plans, upcoming projects and diversifying my craft. From there we met up with my Aunt Felicia who was assisting me with a very special project. I didn't know that what would happen next would turn my world upside down.
I signed my name on the dotted line, imagining the venue space and the things that we could do with it. You see, my team was planning a dope Chicago event that was sure to light the city on fire! We had such cool ideas and I couldn't wait to execute them. I was super excited! But when I opened my mouth I didn't know what I was saying. "Wait a minute, maybe it was because of the double shot of espresso that I had before. The jitters and caffeine must be kicking in." I told myself. When I opened my mouth again, I was confused by what was coming out of it. Somehow, my Mum and Aunt calmed me down and I went home to rest. Never knew that that would be the start of my communication disorder that's better known as Aphasia.
Slurred speech. Where was this coming from? Was it from stress, the excitement of my event or was it from the double shot of espresso? When the doctors reviewed the MRI they knew that it was something much more serious. Fast forward to 3 strokes, 2 brain surgeries, 2 angiogram's, a seizure and lots of discomfort. I then received the news that I had one of the rarest forms of Brain Cancer, a sarcoma that started with a nerve in my brain.
Throughout my bout with cancer I remained HOPEFUL. I didn't know what to think but I did know this, how to pray. I was in and out of the hospital and I can remember how I kept my spirits up. Read More about Meechy and find out how you can donate here. #GetWellMeechy
