Pastor Marvin Sap has lost his wife of 15-years to colon cancer. Malinda Sapp passed away earlier today due to complications from the disease.
Praise Houston first broke the news writing, ““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.”
MaLinda had been diagnosed with Stage 4 Colon Cancer in 2009. Following treatment, she was given a clean bill of health before her cancer recurred earlier this year. Pastor Sapp had been calling for around-the-clock prayer for his wife from his fans in the gospel community.
The couple have three children – Marvin II, Mikaila, and Madisson.
“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.
It was confirmed on the Lonnie Williams show today. An official press release has not been issued yet but more details will be coming on the Yolanda Adams Morning show tomorrow morning!
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.”
The couple was married for 15 years.
R.I.P. and I send my prayers to the entire Sapp family….it is a sad day in the gospel community.
