If something was evident from Chadwick’s demise from colon cancer it is that he is a hero both onscreen and off-screen.
In a chat with People “Black Panther,” creator Nate More recollected the last conversation he had with Chadwick which was about the ‘Make-A-Wish Foundation. And besides the current pandemic situation, Chad wanted to make sick children happy.
Moore stated that they were ensuring to make a young boy happy with a voice note from Chad’s character T’Challa along with a pack of toys.
Speaking on this he said: “No easy feat when we weren’t allowed to leave our homes or go to the office,” and went on to say that Boseman was finding a way to grand his wish as “he cared so intently, and in hindsight, so personally.”
Breaking my twitter silence to share some beauty. This was one of my final texts from the brilliant & once-in-lifetime talent, @chadwickboseman – take this in & celebrate life. He knew how precious every moment was. Tonight the Heavens received one of its most powerful angels. pic.twitter.com/Hj8Cb1IfZS

Revealing the last text from Chadwick which said:
‘It broke me, man. But we need to do that for them. People deserve an abundant life, special moments. They’ve been through hell battling disease. If we were able to ease their suffering and bring joy for a moment, and hopefully moments as he goes through the bags, then we made a difference in his life.’
This may be because Chad had been suffering from a disease but Moore stated that it was not the reason and continued that: “I think that’s just who he was as a man. A leader and a caregiver first, who accomplished both of those things as a performer and as a regular person.”
Same as Moore, actor Josh had also honored Chadwick by posting the last texts they had in which chad poetically asked people to “take advantage of every moment we can.”
