Black Panther was such a beloved character that we kind of got to love the man behind it too, especially after finding out he had been dealing with something so difficult and still got the strength to play King T'Challa from Wakanda so well.

When something bad happens to a public figure the audience starts thinking about it and reflecting on it, is like it becomes real somehow. When it comes to colon cancer people reflecting on it is wonderful news, especially for the Orgs that fight the disease and try real hard to raise funds for research and new treatments.

Anjee Davis, President of Fight Colorectal Cancer, said the organization got a major social media boost and raised more than $10K. She also pointed out that prevention is the most important thing. Screenings have been affected by the pandemic but everyone is being optimistic about this situation. Is never too late to get informed and take action!
