Yvette Wilson Who Played Andell in Moesha dies

Yvette Wilson, the star of ‘Moesha’ and its spin-off, ‘The Parkers’,  has died from cervical cancer and complications from kidney disease. The comedian was 48 years old.

Leading up to her death, her friend and former co-star Shar Jackson reached out to her twitter followers to pray for her friend. Shar consequently broke the news of her friend’s death, also through twitter.

Until June 9, there was an ongoing  effort to raise funds for Wilson’s medical costs as well as her transportation. The website that that was created to raise funds for her reportedly raised a little over half of the target amount.

Although Wilson was best known for acting on the television comedies  ‘Moesha’ and ‘The Parkers’, she also acted in movies. She appeared on many comedy films such as House Party 2, House Party 3, Friday and Def Comedy Jam.

Rest In Peace, Yvette.

    When I heard that Yvette Wilson has passed away due to cervical cancer, I was shocked and saddened due to the fact that she was so young and extremely gifted. Cancer in the African American is at an epidemic proportion and it’s killing many people on a daily basis and many of these are not diagnosed or haven’t received the proper treatment to prevent the disease from spreading. Annual checkup’s is required to detect diseases and receive medical treatment immediately. R.I.P. Yvette Wilson.
