When Chadwick Boseman died after a hard fought battle with colon cancer, the world lost its ‘Black Panther.’ But for Kevin Boseman, he lost his younger brother.
Today, in a surprising development, it’s surfaced that he too had been battling cancer as well.
Full story below…
Across multiple Instagram stories (which were first posted earlier this month), the 48-year-old revealed:
‘Today marks my official two-year remission anniversary. October 14, 2020.’
He went on to add:
“I was diagnosed with cancer in 2018 and underwent four rounds of chemotherapy.
I’m in remission!!!!! You read right. I am in remission.
I wanted to share because while it’s been a year of profound loss and tragedy for so many of this. This is goof news. Something to smile about.”
The timeline of Kevin’s battle suggests that for a period both he and Chadwick were fighting against variables of the disease at the same time.
For, when he passed, the actor’s reps confirmed that he was diagnosed with colon cancer back in 2016 and battled valiantly until his death in August of this year.
Our thoughts and prayers remain with the entire Boseman family.
