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.
The Reach Records emcee is very active on social media. He often shares his music and creativity on the platform but he went on to urge fans to use their pages for more than just casual engagement and entertainment.
“I’m asking that y’all would take the time to do something right now that can actually HELP the world. Not just posts about ‘sending positivity’ – actually doing something,” he wrote. “People like my mom are all over the world needing blood transfusions, stem cells, platelets, umbilical cord blood and more. U may be carrying in your body the very thing needed to save somebody else’s life.”
