The World Is Shocked After the Loss of Chadwick Boseman Who Had Battled Cancer for 4 Years

2 Mins read

The world was shocked this weekend after the loss of actor and role model Chadwick Boseman, who died from colon cancer at just 43 years old.

He was best known for his role as T’Challa, the king of Wakanda, in the 2018 Marvel film, “Black Panther.”

“Black Panther” was more than a regular superhero film … it was a cultural phenomenon with an all-star cast of majority-black talent in front of and behind the cameras.

It’s celebration of African society and identity impacted modern culture and captured the hearts of many around the world.

Rest in peace to the great actor/role model Chadwick Boseman who died yesterday in his home after a 4-year battle with colon cancer. His most prominent role was in the 2018 Marvel film “Black Panther” as T’Challa, the king of Wakanda, but he also played Black American icons such as Jackie Robinson in “42,” Thurgood Marshall in “Marshall” who & James Brown in “Get on Up.” We at Karmagawa send our condolences and prayers to his family, friends and to all his fans & have made a donation to @americancancersociety in his honor — we encourage you to do the same because cancer has taken the lives of far too many people like Chadwick too soon! He was just 43 years old, filming his breakout roles even while sick which makes his performances even more remarkable. His family released a statement that said “A true fighter, Chadwick persevered through it all, and brought you so many of the films you have come to love so much. From Marshall to Da 5 Bloods, August Wilson's Ma Rainey's Black Bottom and several more, all were filmed during and between countless surgeries and chemotherapy." Swipe over to see more about this great man, who kept his illness private while inspiring everyone with his work/beliefs & raising over $4 million to provide protective equipment to black communities hardest hit by covid. He also communicated with children with terminal cancer throughout the filming of “Black Panther” and since he kept his illness private, nobody else knew how truly personal those talks were. Over 600,000 people die of cancer in the US each year, an estimated 53,200 deaths from colon cancer. Colon cancer has a 90% survival rate if discovered early on, but sadly Chadwick found out too late so please share this to spread awareness & support @americancancersociety in Chadwick’s honor, RIP King. #ripchadwickboseman #coloncancer #ripking #karmagawa

Chadwick starred in other prominent roles … including, Jackie Robinson in “42,” Thurgood Marshall in “Marshall,” and James Brown in “Get on Up.”

What makes his death even more heartbreaking is the discovery that he had been keeping his battles private and fighting the terrible disease for 4 years — while filming his breakout roles.

He had communicated with children suffering from terminal cancer throughout the filming of “Black Panther” … and now we know how personal those talks were.

His family released a statement that said, “A true fighter, Chadwick persevered through it all, and brought you so many of the films you have come to love so much. From Marshall to Da 5 Bloods, August Wilson’s Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, and several more, all were filmed during and between countless surgeries and chemotherapy.”

We are heartbroken at Karmagawa and we’re inspired by Chadwick’s work and dedication to making a mark on the world while he was here.

Even during the pandemic, he raised over $4 million to provide protective equipment to black communities hardest hit by COVID-19.

Over 600,000 people die of cancer in the United States each year … and an estimated 53,200 of those deaths are from colon cancer.

Colon cancer has a 90% survival rate if it’s discovered early, but Chadwick found out too late.

As an expression of our condolences, we have made a donation to The American Cancer Society.
