Chadwick Boseman died this weekend. He was 43 and died of colon cancer. His diagnosis was kept confidential between his closest family and friends, meaning he showed incredible determination and strength working to make moving art with pain and grace. This article in the USA Today is a timely reminder about the uptick of colon cancer in people under the age of 50. It reminds us that it is never too soon to think about the things you want to achieve, the legacy you want to leave and to complete and make your plans and directives. Boseman lived his life exactly how he wanted until the end. What a powerful message for us all. RIP.
