Wilson, who is 67 years old, is battling pancreatic cancer. He is the father of three-year-old Mariah, with whom he appeared on the front page of the Seattle Times on June 23, 2016. That, along with his having been “reunited with the Lord and maintaining a healthy relationship with my daughter,” are among his most treasured memories. He feels now that his life has been “blessed with a Christian aura.”
Wilson would like to thank the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, D.E.S.C., the Seattle Times, and the African American Museum for their care and support.
