They claim this cancer if caught early is "curable" yet another young woman has passed from it. My mom was 45 when she passed from the same thing. We need more awareness. And women ALL women please get your annuals done. Dont put it off, please!

RIP Yvette. Please ladies get your pap smears. I am not saying she did not but I had a friend die at 39 after being diagnosed with cervical cancer at 37. She had not had a pap smear in 8 years and it was too late when she finally went to the Dr. So please for yourself and your friends and family, have yearly check ups. Prayers to Yvette's family.

So young. RIP, Yvette. Just a side note. Why did TMZ feel it was necessary to state that her cancer was at stage 4 when she died? Generally when you die of cancer, it is at stage 4 or you don't die. It is still treatable. But anyway, I am so sorry for her family and friends.

Who else feels, "dead", sounds cold and harsh. TMZ always posts, "So and So DEAD at...", it reads better if it's "So and so dies at..."... Just something i've noticed.

RIP Ms Wilson.
