    RTH Meh...

    Died yesterday, August 28th, of colon cancer at 43.

    I hope they recast Tchalla for Black Panther 2.

    Then prior to the movie, a tribute to Chadwick Boseman.

    At the end of the tribute, the actor recast as Tchalla comes out to praise him and acknowledge he will never replace Boseman, but hopes to live up to his Tchalla.

    I remember there were pics that surfaced of him weighing like 100 pounds months ago,people assumed it might be for a movie role, now we know.

    It was some streaming thing, I believe... yeah, a lot of people thought he was fasting for a role.

    He kept it hidden and that of tryihg to keep it private as he did not want anybody to know and he married his wife last year knowing he would not have a lot of time on the earth. Poor guy only 43 years old. RIP just when he was at the beginning of his peak.

    Great idea, I’m on board with this. Instead of pretending it’s the same guy, the movie can start off with an ceremony and tribute to Tchalla and acknowledging an off screen death, while a new Black Panther gets selected.

    Really a shame

    Black Panther was really good and he played the part really well.

    It's hard for a person that young to get that disease because it is usually late stage when diagnosed. A person in their early 40s who is physically fit just does not think about colon cancer.

    The age in which physicians start recommending testing is 50. The American cancer society is trying to get people to begin testing at 45. Still would not have helped this young man.

    For those squeamish about a colonoscopy there is a test that not only detects blood in stool but detects genetic abnormalities in your stool that could indicate cancer. If clear you do not need to take that test again in 3 years.

    My doctor put it as plainly as possible. He said that nobody needs to die from colon cancer.

    Personally, I'm looking forward to the full version test when I reach 40 or so. The Navy has gotten me on enough occasions, that there is 0% chance I feel anything going on back there. Plus, I'll find out if I have cancer.

    Joking aside, my uncle died from colon cancer maybe 10 years ago. We weren't very close but I remember my mom passing along that he had been diagnosed and it very rapidly got worse. If I remember correctly from diagnosis to his unfortunate death took less than a year, maybe even as short as 8 months. He was in his low 60's and I know the last month or so were very difficult as he was in hospice care and talking about the pain. One of the first times I realized how much weed can help .
