In an interview with People, Nate described how he and the 42 actor ‘worked together to get a young boy a voice note from T’Challa, as well as a package of toys.’

The filmmaker said Boseman cared ‘so intently, and in hindsight, so personally’ about the terminally ill children with whom they worked.

And despite how seeing the ill children ‘broke’ the A-lister, he texted Moore that ‘we need to do that for them.’

‘People deserve abundant life, special moments,’ Chadwick’s text continued. ‘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,’ concluded the 21 Bridges star. 

Meanwhile, according to a new report by THR, apart from family Boseman only told ‘a small group of insiders’ about his cancer battle.

‘No one involved with Black Panther was aware,’ a source told the outlet. 

The superhero film grossed $1.35 billion worldwide and was nominated for a best picture Oscar.

The family revealed several of Boseman’s recent films, including Marshall, Da 5 Bloods, and August Wilson’s Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, were filmed ‘during and between countless surgeries and chemotherapy.

‘It was the honor of his career to bring King T’Challa to life in Black Panther. The family thanks you for your love and prayers, and asks that you continue to respect their privacy during this difficult time.’
