She was also in need of a kidney transplant. Close friend and former Moesha co-star Shar Jackson broke the news of Yvette’s death on Twitter. Fighting through her emotions, Shar tweeted:

“Everyone plz send prayer and light to my sister and best friend Yvette Wilson. I need my prayer soldiers right.”

After a while Shar Jackson tweeted through tears:

“F*ck Cancer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 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.”
