It’s with our deepest sympathy that we inform you that Pastor Marvin Sapp’s wife MaLinda Sapp has passed on today (September 9th) after her second battle with colon cancer. This sad news was confirmed on the Lonnie Williams show today. An official press release has not been issued yet, but more details will be coming on tomorrow’s (September 10th) “Yolanda Adams Morning Show.”
Earlier this year, Marvin Sapp was testifying of how his wife, MaLinda, was given a clean bill of health by doctors after being diagnosed with Stage four colon cancer in 2009. But then, those health concerns resurfaced, and Marvin Sapp requested intense, around-the-clock prayer. Back in April of 2009 Marvin Sapp’s wife MaLinda went to the hospital after experiencing excruciating pain. At first, the two thought she likely had kidney stones. But according to Sapp, the doctors checked her and couldn’t find any stones. In a recent interview he explained, “But the pain wouldn’t leave, so they did some tests and came back to the room and told us it was stage four colon cancer.” Earlier this year, the doctors pronounced Mrs. Sapp cancer-free.
Please keep Pastor Marvin Sapp and their three children in your prayers during this difficult time.
