Super Eagles goalkeeper Carl Ikeme steps out after beating Cancer

About two weeks ago, Super Eagles goalkeeper, Carl Ikeme, revealed that his cancer is in “complete remission.” Looks like all is well indeed. He just made his first public appearance.

Ikeme had shared the good news on his Twitter handle, writing; “After a year of intense chemotherapy I would like to share that I am in complete REMISSION.”

“I still have hurdles to pass to be cured, but hopefully I can move on with some normality! I would like to thank everyone for there support over the past year. Thank you #Grateful”

The shots-stopper have now made his first public appearance after announcing his cancer is in complete remission.

A Sports writer and editor, Nathan Judah, who shared the photos of Ikeme's first public appearance, revealed on Twitter that the Wolverhampton Wanderers' goalkeeper helped in opening a brand new Haematology & Oncology Day unit at Solihull Hospital.

"Forget the game tonight...this is the best picture you’ll see today as a smiling @Carl_Ikeme makes his first public appearance since announcing he was in remission as he helped open the brand new Haematology & Oncology Day unit at Solihull Hospital #wwfc #teamkemes," he captioned the photos.

The 32-year-old was diagnosed with acute leukemia last summer, after returning abnormal blood tests and he has not been able to play football since then. We wish him complete recovery.
