“Something to smile about. Something to shout about,” he continued. “I hope you’re smiling and shouting with me. Cancer is something most of us have no control over. We can only control our responses to it, which includes being proactive about our healthcare both physically and mental.”
Kevin added, “Tomorrow is not promised and early detection saves lives. Health is wealth. True wealth.”
His remission anniversary comes less than two months after Chadwick died after a four year private battle with colon cancer.
The “Black Panther” star died on Aug. 28 at the age of 43.
The sad news was shared his Twitter and Instagram accounts.
“A true fighter, Chadwick persevered through it all and brought you 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.”
