Chadwick Boseman visited children fighting cancer while privately battling the disease himself
Chadwick Boseman died Friday night after a four-year battle with colon cancer — a fight he chose to face privately — leaving both fans and his Hollywood peers in shock at his sudden passing.
While he chose not to share his own illness with the world, the “Black Panther” star did what he could to support children enduring the same plight, visiting terminally ill fans at St. Jude’s Hospital in 2018, the organization shared via social media.
