Super eagles goalkeeper carl Ikeme winning leukaemia battle
Carl Ikeme who was diagnosed with leukaemia last year has announced that he is on the road to recovery after undergoing chemotherapy.
Ikeme talked about how though it has been, but he is in full remission now and on the road to recovery and is taking things one day at a time. He also thanked a whole lot of people including Nigeria and the wolves (his club before the health challenges)
Ikeme who has been with Wolverhampton Wanderers for his entire career and has played almost 200 games for the club as well as another 60 in spells on loan at other English clubs — returned “abnormal blood tests” during pre-season testing.
He shared photos of himself and his children with a long note of thanks and where his health stands for now.
“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 (in Manchester) enough for there care!!! What next who knows… I’m just taking it a day at a time” he said.
All through this trying times Carl Ikeme laced it with humour and this gave a whole lot of people peace in their heart.
In August 2017 when his transfer was due, Carl shared a humorous post saying he was transferring from one hospital room to another.
We wish him full and total recovery.
