Last month Yvette Wilson, who we all loved as Andell Wilkerson from the ’90s shows ‘Moesha’ and ‘The Parkers,’ reached out to the public hoping to get financial help for the mounting medical bills stemming from her Stage 4 cervical cancer. She needed $25,000 by the 1st of June to undergo proper treatment to go up against the cancer which came back “very aggressive,” as she expressed.
It’s with a heavy heart we report that yesterday evening, Yvette lost her battle and passed away.
Yvette’s good friend and ‘Moesha’ co-star Shar Jackson was tweeting for the last few days, asking for her followers to send out prayers, however last night she let the world know that Yvette had passed.
Everyone plz send prayer and light to my sister and best friend Yvette Wilson…..
Oh god….. My heart is soooo unbelievably broken ….
I wanna thank all my tweeties for their prayers but god has chosen to take my sister Yvette home.. …
Twitter has lit up with people sending their condolences from around the world, including actress Gabrielle Union:
#RIPYVETTEWILSON Great actress from “Moesha” & “The Parkers” She was truly beautiful inside & out. You will be missed. Love & Light
Rest in peace, Ms. Wilson.
