My Auntie Tancy found these of my Granny and I at dinner after my high school graduation. I miss this woman more than words can say. And every time I think about how much I miss her, I can feel her spirit inside my own. Staying Pretty because she taught me how.
So Ronald Lee Haskell, a Caucasian man who murdered an entire family execution style including 4 children, was brought into police custody PEACEFULLY.
While Eric Garner a Black man who was SUSPECTED of selling loose cigarettes in front of a bodega was murdered by the police on SIGHT!
I love our Saturday morning at home. Chillin. Not running off to work. This is life. Breakfast was enjoyed. Slowly. While watching cartoons. :-)
Please help support Meechy as she fights the toughest battle of her life. #GetWellMeechy
On April 15, 2014 one of the natural hair community’s most loved and respected YouTube bloggers, Meechy Monroe, suffered an unexplained stroke. This would be the first of three consecutive strokes and two brain surgeries over the next three months of her life that threatened to change everything. This is her story.
Meechy began sharing her natural hair journey with her, now, thousands of online subscribers and followers in the Fall of 2010. Her goal has always been to help others along their self-seeking quests by way of inspiration and countless step-by-step online video tutorials for hair care and styling.
She and her sister, MsVaughnTV, have honed themselves a natural hair duo called “The Monroe Sisters” having traveled together all over the United States and parts of Europe sharing their enthusiasm around embracing the beauty of natural hair.
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). As usual Meechy is very optimistic and has been blessed with an amazing team of renowned Surgeons, Oncologists and Nurses whom are walking closely with her on the road to recovery with God leading the way!
“This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth, but thou shalt meditate thereon day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.” Joshua 1:8
Meechy hopes that you will share in her recovery by following her story on her blog for weekly updates. She hopes that you will join her family and friends cheering her along as she fights the toughest battle of her life!
