NewsOne was the first to report the news.

Pittle, a creative director, created a Give Forward page to raise money for the actress’s medical bills in January. “Yvette has experienced kidney failure, kidney transplants and cervical cancer, among other things,” Pittle wrote. “Her cancer has come back after an extended retreat, and doctors are saying it’s very aggressive this time out.”

Wilson, who began her career as a stand-up comic, played Andell Wilkerson on the Brandy-led show “Moesha.” She also starred on the show’s spinoff “The Parkers.”

News of Wilson’s death spread quickly on Twitter, where her name became a trending topic. Famous Twitter users Jackee Harry, Niecy Nash and Loni Love remembered her.
