One of the TV aunts that we will never forget has died from cervical cancer. Yvette Wilson, who played on the TV show, “Moesha” was struggling to the very end, fighting both cervical cancer and kidney problems. Just this week on YBW, we mentioned that more and more black women are dying from HPV (HPV is the cause of most cervical cancers), and men are dying from it as well (due to head and neck cancers) .
We ask that everyone go to the doctor regularly to get checkups, make sure your partners get tested for ALL STDS, not just HIV, and also be thoughtful about where you share your body. We don’t know how Yvette got the cancer that took her life, but we know that this is a growing trend in the African American community.
