On May 31, 2014, one of the natural hair community’s most beloved and respected YouTube bloggers, Meechy Monroe, was diagnosed with a rare sarcoma (a 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 a diagnosis of Aphasia (a disturbance of the delivery of language). After a second brain surgery on July 3, 2014, Meechy is making drastic improvements with the help of physical, occupational, and speech therapy, and is currently awaiting the next phase of her treatment: radiation and chemo therapy. However, as she continues her recovery, medical bills are piling up, and Team Natural has decided to host a fundraising event to help cover the cost of her care.
Curls for a Cause special guests include; Constance of Team Natural, Shalleen-Kay of Natural Hair Does Care, Ms.Vaughn, Afrobella, Tiffany Nichols, Donedo, Sumetra Reed, & a guest performance by Brown Audio.
The event will feature a panel discussion on blogging, business, and branding, hair demonstrations, complimentary hors d’oeuvres, swag bags, raffles, and more.
It all takes place September 20th between 6:00pm-8:30pm. General admission is $25 and $40 for VIP attendance. Visit the Curls for a Cure Eventbrite page to secure your entry and donation for this worthy cause. For sponsorship opportunities, email Info.TeamNatural@yahoo.com.
