Yvette Wilson, Moesha Star, Dies at 48
Yvette Wilson died Thursday after battling cervical cancer. She was 48.
The actress was best known for her role on the UPN sitcom Moesha as Andell Wilkerson. She starred in five seasons and its spinoff, The Parkers.
According to TMZ, Wilson had Stage 4 cancer at the time of her death.
A website was created in Wilson's name to help raise money for her medical costs. "Yvette has experienced kidney failure, kidney transplants and cervical cancer, among other things," the site states. "Her cancer has come back after an extended retreat, and doctors are saying it's very aggressive this time out."
Moesha costar Shar Jackson tweeted Thursday, "F--k cancer... Oh god. My heart is so unbelievably broken."
Jackson added, "I want to thank all my tweeties for their prayers but god has chosen to take my sister Yvette home."
