Chadwick Boseman visited sick children during his own cancer battle


Chadwick Boseman died on Friday after a private battle with colon cancer.

Two years ago, while he was battling with his health, he visited St Jude Children's Research Hospital, which treats childhood cancers and paediatric diseases.

On Saturday the hospital posted a moving tribute to the Black Panther star on Twitter. They wrote: "We are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of our friend Chadwick Boseman. Two years ago, Chadwick visited the St. Jude campus and brought with him not only toys for our patients but also joy, courage and inspiration. Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this time."
