Yvette Wilson of ‘Moesha’ Fame Loses Battle With Cervical Cancer
It’s sad to report but Yvette Wilson who was best known for her portrayal of Andell Wilkerson on the 90′s hit show ‘Moesha’ and on “The Parkers” has lost her battle with cervical cancer. She was only 48 years old.
If you recall, last month her family was attempting to raise $25,000 to help with treatment of her illness and help with her medical bills, but with last night’s passing it’s unclear if they had yet made that mark.
Close friend & co-star Shar Jackson tweeted about Yvette’s death last night, saying that “I wanna thank all my tweeties for their prayers but god has chosen to take my sister Yvette home.. …”
Cervical cancer is very fatal for black americans, because we as a group die from this cancer more than any other race. The Genital human papillomavirus (HPV) is a huge factor in what causes this slow-growing disease, and blacks may have a problem clearing it, for various reasons. Just more reason to why we need to focus and fight for better reproductive health care of all women, and focus on living healthier lives.
God knows best! RIP Yvette, you are free!… You were funny, talented and a staple in my household since I grew up watching Moesha. She will definitely be missed.
