Super Eagles goalkeeper Carl Ikeme gets Complete Remission from Acute Leukemia after a year of chemotherapy treatment.
The Wolverhampton Wonderers goalie will now depart hospital as he begins journey to complete recovery.
He announced the new development this afternoon on his social media handle saying:
“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.”
The 32-year-old was Nigeria’s first choice goalkeeper and played two games in the qualification campaign until he was diagnosed with acute leukemia.
