Rapper Andy Mineo, who has been a popular name in Christian hip-hop for a decade now, has stayed mum on his mother’s battle with cancer but he is breaking his silence now to spread awareness because they weren’t able to find a stem cell match.
“I got the phone call in November 2017 that my mom was diagnosed with cancer. Leukemia,” Mineo shared on Instagram this week. “I haven’t shared anything about this – only with close friends.”
The 30-year-old spent the weekend with his mother, Francis, who raised him as a single parent. He went with her to the hospital as she went in for a bone marrow transplant.
Mineo described his mother as being in “good spirits and trusting God.”
“She wanted me to share this with you. They were unable to find a match for her to receive stem cells, so we had to take another course of treatment. I want to send this post out as a call to action,” he said.
