The brother of “Black Panther” actor Chadwick Boseman revealed Tuesday that he is in remission from cancer.
Kevin Boseman, 48, recently shared via Instagram stories that this month makes two years since he has been cancer free.
“I wanted to share because while it’s been a year of profound loss and tragedy for so many of us," he wrote. “This is good news. Something to smile about. Something to shout about.”
“Cancer is something most of us have no control over," he added. "We can only control our responses to it, which includes being proactive about our healthcare both physically and mental ... Tomorrow is not promised and early detection saves lives. Health is wealth -- true wealth.”
Chadwick Boseman died Aug. 28 at the age of 42. He had been privately battling colon cancer for four years and filmed a number of movies while undergoing treatments.
Chadwick Boseman will appear posthumously in “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,” which debuts Dec. 18 on Netflix.
