Chadwick Boseman's brothers, Kevin and Derrick, reveal late actor was 'ready to die' after four-year colon cancer battle

CHADWICK Boseman's brothers, Kevin and Derrick, revealed the late actor was 'ready to die' just before he lost his battle with cancer.

The Black Panther star was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2016, but it was kept private until after his death.

Derrick Boseman, who is a pastor in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, told the New York Times Chadwick was ready for the battle with cancer to be over.

He said his brother told him: "Man, I'm in the fourth quarter, and I need you to get me out of the game."

Pastor Boseman relayed: "When he told me that, I changed my prayer from, 'God heal him, God save him,' to 'God, let your will be done.

"And the next day he passed away."

Chadwick died on August 28th at the age of 43.

Chadwick's other brother Kevin shared how he's trying to keep his memory alive.

Kevin said: "I have been trying to remember Chad and not Chadwick.

"And there's just been a lot of Chadwick in the air."

Kevin, who is also an actor, director and writer, also shared of Chadwick's celebrity: "You have to start sharing that person with the world; I always endeavored to just treat him like my brother."

As an artist, Pastor Boseman said of his brother: "Chad was gifted. He's probably the most gifted person I've ever met."

He went on : "A lot of people think making it means becoming an A-list movie star.

"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."

The Black Panther star is survived by his wife, Taylor Simone Ledward.

He was buried on September 3rd at Welfare Baptist Church Cemetery in Belton, South Carolina, about 11 miles from Boseman’s hometown of Anderson.

Chadwick died at his home in Los Angeles, according to a death certificate obtained by The Associated Press.
