"Meechy’s momentum was cut short on May 31, 2014 when she was diagnosed with a rare sarcoma (or vascular cancerous tumor) in her brain. The tumor caused Meechy to suffer multiple mild strokes, which have led to certain physical and speech challenges including an Aphasia diagnosis (a disturbance of the delivery of language – not at all linked to a loss of intelligence). On May 30th 2014, Meechy underwent her first of two brain surgeries. It was this craniotomy which actually revealed the tumor. In preparation for the procedure, rather than lose her hair, she had it carefully shaved, preserved and donated to Locks of Love—a not-for-profit organization which focuses on Cancer patients coping with hair loss."
Please keep @meechymonroe and her family in your prayers! #getwellmeechy
