Family and Friends,

It’s with our deepest sympathy that we inform you that Pastor Marvin Sapp’s wife MaLinda Sapp has passed on today after battling colon cancer.

An official press release has not been issued yet but more details will be coming on the Yolanda Adams Morning show tomorrow morning. The Yolanda Adams Morning Show can be heard on our sister station, Praise 102.5, from 6am to 10am.

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 4 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.”

Please keep Pastor Marvin Sapp and family in your prayers during this difficult time.
