IOWA CITY, Iowa (KCRG) – The recent passing of actor Chadwick Boseman has put a spotlight on the thousands of young people battling Colon Cancer. Boseman died at the age of 43, after a 4 year battle with the disease.
“Chadwick Boseman is super inspirational hero of mine. I’m a big fan of Marvel movies, he’s the “Black Panther”. I love him in those movies like Jackie Robinson”
But 22-year-old Isaac Moel has more than just that in common with the actor.
“When you think cancer a lot of people think older people, like grandparents. They don’t see me on the street or see Chadwick Boseman and his movies and think that’s what a cancer patient looks like,” said Moel.
But it’s Moel’s reality.
