Popular ’90s comedienne Yvette Wilson is best known for her roles in Friday and as Andell Wilkerson in Moesha and The Parkers. But the tragic story of her recent medical and financial woes is picking up a bit of media steam. Wilson has been diagnosed with Stage 4 cervical cancer and has also experienced kidney failure. She is currently in search of a donor and a fund has been set up in her honor, to defray the mounting costs of her medical care.
You can visit and donate to the Yvette Wilson Fund here. And the NewsOne website has more information on Wilson’s case, as well as what some superstitious fans have begun calling the “Moesha curse.” (Wilson is the fifth cast regular or guest star to meet a fatal or near-fatal circumstance.)
