Black Panther - A Hero Beyond the Screen
Black Panther was a hero for us all, but a particularly unique hero for children with illnesses. Pictures of Chadwick Boseman comforting children in hospital rooms warmed our heart before, but has an entirely different grasp on our hearts now.
Chadwick Boseman passed away after battling an aggressive cancer. He never spoke of his painful journey and recorded several films including Black Panther while experiencing high levels of pain and several diagnoses.
Chadwick was also present in hospitals and devoted his time away from work to putting a smile on the face of others.
Black Panther was not only a warrior on the screen, but left hope for all who fight terminal illnesses. Knowing now that Black Panther was recorded while Chadwick battled illness, it brings hope, faith and a reminder that anything is possible and that superheroes exist on and off the screen.
