Chadwick Boseman’s Brother Kevin Celebrates 2nd-Year Anniversary of Cancer Remission

Chadwick Boseman’s brother Kevin Boseman recently celebrated a personal milestone.

According to The Shade Room, on October 14, Kevin reportedly posted an IG Story where he honored the second-year anniversary of his cancer remission.

Kevin reportedly wrote that he was diagnosed with the illness in 2018 and was treated with chemotherapy.

“I was diagnosed with cancer in 2018 and underwent four rounds of chemotherapy. I’m in remission!!!!! You read right. I am in remission,” the reported posts read.

According to The Grio, Kevin reportedly 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,” he was quoted saying.

“I hope you’re smiling and shouting with me,” he reportedly 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.”

Kevin also reportedly encouraged his followers to get regular health checkups.

“Tomorrow is not promised and early detection saves lives,” he reportedly said, concluding, “Health is wealth. True wealth.”

In late August, Kevin’s brother Chadwick passed away after secretly battling colon cancer since 2016.

Per a statement posted to Chadwick’s social media, the actor continued to act in acclaimed films such as “Marshall” and “Da 5 Bloods” while simultaneously seeking treatment.

Earlier this month, Kevin spoke to The New York Times about what it was like to deal with Chadwick’s celebrity.

“You have to start sharing that person with the world,” Kevin said about his brother’s fame. “I always endeavored to just treat him like my brother.”

Though their father had doubts about whether Chadwick would succeed in the entertainment industry, Kevin knew his brother would find his way.

“A lot of people think making it means becoming an A-list movie star,” Kevin said. “I didn’t force that. I just knew that if Chad wanted to work in the arts, he would find a way and take care of himself.

“He always did his best,” Kevin added. “His best was incredible.”
