Andy Mineo’s Mother Dies After Battle With Cancer

Andy Mineo and his mother Francis.

Rapper Andy Mineo says his mother’s battle with cancer has come to an end. 

“This past Tuesday my mother, Fran Mineo, passed away,” he wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of his mother taken before her cancer diagnosis.

Mineo, who has been a popular name in Christian hip-hop for a decade, added, “She battled leukemia this past year and was on the upswing after her stem cell transplant. Unfortunately, there were complications and she went home to be with the Lord.”

The 30 year old revealed that he had the gift of “sitting by her bedside as she passed” in Chicago last week. He recalled holding her, praying for her and reading her Scripture before she died.

This past Tuesday my mother, Fran Mineo, passed away. I took this picture one year ago – right before her diagnosis. She battled Leukemia this past year and was on the upswing after her stem cell transplant. Unfortunately, there were complications and she went home to be with the Lord. I had the gift of sitting by her bedside as she passed, to hold her, read scripture and pray over her. She died surrounded by family and her children. My family and I have been grieving her loss this week together in Chicago. We’ve wept from our souls. We have laughed remembering her, told countless stories, looked at pictures and held each other when we needed it. Franny always made it happen. Working the night shift, raising kids on her own, shopping at garage sales so we could have the best clothes and sneakers. She lived so much of her life like Jesus. It was hard to not be impacted by her, even if you only met her once. I appreciate the space people have given my family and I in this time. I’ve had new music getting ready to come out and a fall tour in motion – my team will be running my socials for a while to keep you guys updated about those things while I take time to grieve. I appreciate all of you 🤟🏼.
