Super Eagles no.1 goalkeeper, Carl Ikeme
, has made his first public appearance since he was diagnosed with Leukemia.
The 32 year old was seen at the opening of a new chemotherapy unit at Solihull Hospital in Solihull, England. In June the goalie who was receiving treatment at Sister Hospital, Heartlands, before moving to a clinic in Manchester, revealed via his instagram page that he is finally in Leukemia remission:
“After a tough year and intense chemotherapy throughout I would like to let everyone know I am in complete REMISSION . I still have hurdles to get over to be cured but I can hopefully now move forward with some normality. I would like to thank my family/friends to start with who have gone above and beyond for me ❤
The support I have received from Wolves/Nigeria, the football world and from people from all over the world has been hard to put into words. I can’t thank everyone at the Christie and heartlands hospital enough for there care!!!What next who knows… I’m just taking it a day at a time #Grateful ?? #Remission”
Ikeme was joined by Black Sabbath rock legend, Tony Iomm, at the opening of the cancer care unit, according to reports by Express & Star.
