On November 11th, Angela Miracle Gladue a.k.a. Bgirl, hoop, & fancy shawl dancer ‘Lunacee’, was on her way to catch her flight home after touring in Europe with A Tribe Called Red. As Angela got to to the airport she started to have severe stomach pain that kept her from walking to the flight departure gate. An ambulance was quickly called, and Angela was taken to the hospital to receive a CT scan where the doctor told her that he could not let her fly and that she needed to be operated on right away, or else it could be fatal. It turned out that Angela had a severe case of Volvulus and ended up needing 3 emergency surgeries to fix her intestines, that also included removing the appendix and part of her gallbladder.
Angela has been in Paris, France for three weeks now and will be there until her system reboots and heals. Unfortunately insurance doesn't cover any of her costs, because it is not a dance injury related to a performance and is considered a "pre existing" condition which means Angela has to pay for the hospital bills.
Right now Angela is looking at upwards of 60,000 dollars in medical costs right now and needs the help of friends, family and the community that she works with and supports to fund these emergency medical costs.How You Can Help?1. Donate to this GoFundMe Campaign.2. Buy a T-Shirt - Canadian Hip-Hop legend "Dedos" has donated his art for the T-shirt campaign Angela has also organized (Link Below). All money raised from the T-shirt campaign and GoFundMe will go towards covering out-of-pocket medical bills in Paris, as well as loss of income while Angela heals and is unable to dance.
Angela has touched so many lives over the years with her incredible dancing and spirit, and in this time of need we are hoping to gather as much support as possible to help Angela get back on her feet doing what she loves, for those that love her.
