Chadwick Boseman is still saving lives, even after his untimely death.
TMZ reports that the "Black Panther" star's passing has sparked a wave of awareness and donations to organizations that specialize in researching colon cancer.
The actor, who was just 43, died on Aug. 28 after a quiet four-year battle with colon cancer. His death, however, has already had a tremendous impact.
The CEO of one colon cancer organization said the death brought on "the most monumental change" to how people view the disease.
Cindy Borassi, Interim President for the Colon Cancer Foundation, said her organization has received at least a 300 percent increase in donations since the actor's death and added that a "larger-than-life personality" like Chadwick could certainly raise awareness and help with a more open dialogue about the disease.
Anjee Davis, President of Fight Colorectal Cancer, told TMZ that her organization saw nearly $10,000 in donations after social media engagements and support following Chadwick's passing. The money, she said, will be used for research to help find a cure for colon cancer, which is the third leading form of cancer in both men and women in the United States.
If nothing else, she hopes the result of Chadwick's death will be heightened awareness and more people getting early screenings for colon cancer.
