‘Tomorrow is not promised and early detection saves lives.’
Kevin Boseman, brother of late actor Chadwick Boseman, shared on his Instagram story that Oct. 14 marks his two year anniversary being cancer free.
Boseman revealed that he was diagnosed with cancer in 2018 and underwent four rounds of chemotherapy. The actor/writer said he initially shared the diagnosis with only a select few people because of “boundaries.”
“I wanted to share because while it’s been a year of profound loss and tragedy for so many of us, this is good news. Something to smile about. Something to shout about,” Boseman said about being in remission.
“I hope you’re smiling and shouting with me,” he added. “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.”
Boseman also encouraged his followers to go get checked if something doesn’t feel right.
“Tomorrow is not promised and early detection saves lives,” he said, concluding with: “Health is wealth. True wealth.”
