According to a report by the Associated Press, Chadwick Boseman, Black Panther star, died of multiple organ failure resulting from colon cancer which had battled for four years.
The “Black Panther” star was laid to rest on September 3, at the Welfare Baptist Church Cemetery in Belton, South Carolina, about 11 miles from Boseman’s hometown of Anderson, the Los Angeles County Certificate showed. Anderson held a public memorial for Boseman a day later.
Boseman died at his home near Griffith Park in Los Angeles on August 28, 2020. The immediate cause was listed as multiple organ failure, with the underlying cause of colon cancer, which his family affirmed that he had been diagnosed with four years earlier.
Boseman had surgery to remove the colon cancer in 2016 after his diagnosis, and in March of this year had laparoscopic surgery to remove cancer that had metastasized, the record showed.
The document listed Boseman’s profession as “artist,” and his industry as entertainment. Very few outside his family knew that Boseman, who played “Black Panther” and also starred in the Jackie Robinson’s biopic “42,” had been battling colon cancer when he died at age 43.
